Pattern Shifting for the Cello, Book One - PDF download
Ready to improve your shifting? This book gives you exercises in rows and patterns that take you through the cello positions.
The first part of the book gives you exercises in first through fourth position while the second part of the book works on first through eighth position.
All of the exercises are in C major so that you can thoroughly learn the spaces on all four strings in this basic key.
After you have studied the first few cello positions, this book is a great way to tie them all together and solidify your knowledge of the fingerboard.
This cello study book is a counterpart to Serial Shifting for the Cello, giving you an all-new set of shifting in rows and patterns that will help you improve!
Who this book can help: Intermediate cellists who want a structured approach to positions.
How to use this book: Play one or more exercises after finger exercises and scales but before etudes and repertoire.
