Switching Between Pizzicato & Arco With German Bow

In this lesson I teach you how to switch between pizzicato and arco when using the German pattern double bass bow. There’s a couple of ways to do it and I show you the methods that were taught to me years ago by a superb teacher Gjorgji Cincievski who first introduced me to the German bow. 

If you play a French pattern double bass check out this superb lesson by Lauren Pierce on switching between pizzicato and arco.
