Playing the E String with German Bow

In this lesson, Los Angeles Philharmonic bassist and USC Thornton School of Music professor David Allen Moore teaches how to play the E string with the German bow. This might sound simple but many players struggle to play the E string with a clean sound, and without hitting the body of the instrument. David breaks down the technique in this short lesson.
