  • Practice, Fun & Learning Double Bass

    Brendan Rowley Jazz Double Bass Teacher (East London) Picture Double bass, and indeed, musicianship didn't come naturally to me. Strangely, as I always loved listening to it and I was entranced by the way it allowed me to connect with strangers, I studiously avoided practising and went to great pains to make up plausible excuses for why I hadn't done my...
  • Dont Look At The Double Bass!

    Ben Muirhead Jazz Double Bass Teacher (Birmingham) Picture The Double Bass is an extremely beautiful and alluring instrument. As bass players we must not be drawn in by its charms.

  • Viennese Tuning On The Double Bass

    Lewis Reid Classical Double Bass Teacher (Uxbridge) Picture The tuning we use today on the double bass hasn't always been the standard tuning. With the bass being so versatile with the amount of strings used, sometimes 3, 4 or 5 on an instrument it's no wonder that the tuning of the bass has changed so drastically compared to the rest of the violin...
  • Physical Health and Double Bass Editor's Pick

    Otto Willberg Jazz Double Bass Teacher (South East London) Picture Playing the bass can be hard in a lot of ways. It takes hours and years of relentless practice and application to develop the skills that we need to become good bass players, and although this can be a struggle itself, it can also have negative affects on our physical health. Playing such a...
