"This book is basically a sequel to my first book, 'The F&D Double Valve Bass Trombone'. The exercises in that book were mainly designed for a double valve bass trombone with dedicated F&D valves. The exercises in this book are specifically designed for the in-line double valve bass trombone, pitched in F, G flat and D, with special focus on the G flat valve. As in my first book, these exercises are designed to give the player an insight as to possible valve/slide combinations that help to minimize or eliminate awkward slide movements."
