Talking Technique: Bach for Two

Ever play a bass duet? It is actually super fun to do and of course great for your technique! In this episode, we have some Bach for you, but don’t worry; we are taking it easy for starters. We have a variety of charts (including TAB) and easy instructions on what to do with all these markings – phrasing and dynamics are super important here.

You can play along with the video and with the video’s speed settings, you can even dial in the tempo that is right for you!

[Editor’s note: For more Bach vibes, hear Ari play Bach’s Cello Suite #1 in all seven movements. But first, it is your turn!]
