Lauren Pierce teaches how to shift cleanly on the double bass. This technique will help you play smoothly and cut down on squeaks and scratches. It also helps you to develop your muscle memory which is an essential aspect of playing in tune. 
In addition to explaining the technique and showing you how to shift, Lauren also shares a great shifting drill for you to practice.
