Welcome new double bass player! This is where you can start following my bass lessons if you are new to the double bass, or even if you have played for a while and you don’t want to miss any basics.
All of these lessons are different that other lessons that you may have come across. I am presenting them as my step-by-step journal and commentary from an adult student’s perspective as I learn how to play the double bass.
