Purely Double Bass is designed to help you become a better Double Bass player. By repeatedly practising the routines and lessons included in the software, your playing technique will improve over time. The advanced visual interface adds an extra dimension to your Double Bass practice, so you can see and hear how the music plays. Content includes scales, arpeggios and rhythm accompaniments.
Play along with Purely Double Bass, with the help of a fingerboard, animated musical score and tab notation. Live animation makes it easy to follow the music, so you can practise in a way that suits you - whatever your skill level.
See upcoming notes and hear how the piece should sound. Choose to hear synthesized music or a metronome rhythm - or a combination of both, if you prefer. This lets you engage in a listen-try approach to practice.

Ratings and Reviews
A "must have" app
This app is awesome. It shows you how to play double bass. It has everything you need in a simple format.
Normally you would have sheet music, a finger positioning chart and perhaps recordings of the songs you're trying to learn. This app is far better. It shows you each note on the sheet, each finger position as you play. It even plays each tone if you want. You can speed it up or slow it down as desired.
If you're trying to learn double bass this is money well spent.
Many good things, but room for improvement
This app includes many excellent features for learning to read music and play it on the double bass. Oddly, it's sole approach is learning scales, arpeggios, and melodic lines for songs to the complete exclusion of accompaniment patterns for jazz or other performers.
I tried downloading the app onto my second iPad, but have not yet succeeded in getting the "restore purchases" feature to work.
