"Since meeting David Allen Moore, Fractal Fingerings have become the "operating system" through which I run every fingering decision I make. The physical movements, left-hand organization, and conceptual upgrades outlined here are, in my opinion, the missing link we've been waiting for to bring the overall level of double bass playing up to speed with the other strings and piano.!"

- Scott Dixon, Double Bass, The Cleveland Orchestra. Cleveland Institute of Music, String Division Chair and Double Bass Department Head.

"David’s Fractal Fingering approach is an essential part of a solid technical foundation, and required material in my bass studio. Simply and brilliantly organized and presented, it helps provide context and clarity to left hand structure and it’s relationship to all parts of the fingerboard. I’ve had great fun using it to help me find musical freedom on the bass."

- Andrew Raciti, Northwestern University Double Bass Department Head

"Fractal fingering has revolutionized my own approach to playing bass. I regularly observe radical transformation in my students who utilize this new technical approach, which unlocks formerly unavailable musical possibilities. Thank you, David, for preparing this method, which in my opinion is the wave of the future, and an example of how double bass pedagogy is developing in real time. Now with the course offered by Discover Doublebass, an important resource now exists, which is the ability to hear David’s explanations and observe his demonstrations in the videos. I look forward to additional discoveries as I study this online course."

- Tracy Rowell, Double Bass teacher at Oberlin Conservatory and at Cleveland Institute of Music Prep
