Thread Name: Bought a double bass today
Subject: RE: Bought a double bass today
Josepp, thanks for the interesting info and the story (the E) about bass playing. It sounds like you are coming along well. I'm glad to hear you are enjoying your instrument.

" I can double- and triple-slap a standard bass shuffle riff."

Sounds good!

I used to sing in a church choir that had a bass available, and every once in a while people would pluck a few notes. Then one day a man with a pony tale popped up and said "Can I play the bass today?" Our leader said yes, and he turned out to be the most incredible player.

Afterwards we talked to him, and it turned out he plays with a jazz band in Chicago and was on tour. We told him to play our bass anytime he came to town.

Until I had never really known how good bass playing sounds.
