Double bassist Erwin has emailed before with questions about double bass techniques–here’s another one that I thought I would toss up on the blog for some reader comments:
To my surprise i found my question about holding the bass in thumb position on the site. Cool man!
Here’s something new. Fingering in thumb position. I can’t find a good book dealing with that.
For example a major scale on 3 strings, do you play that with 1,3, thumb, 1,3, thumb, 2, 3? Seems logical to me..
Keep up the good work and i must subscribe soon, it’s a great site indeed!
