: hello all,
: I was wondering if you had any ideas of exercise one can do to work on the sound produced on doublebass ? I'm thinking of exercise which might help one make more aware of the sound produced, and ways of working on it, both pizz and arco.
: So far apart from playing repeated notes very slowly with different attacks and vibrato I'm out of ideas.
: Yet sound is the first thing one hears...
: Do you think it's just an "always be aware of what you're doing and with time + practice things will improve" kind of thing ?
One more thing- playing arco scales in a darkened room will help you focus on tone and pitch.
