: I am interested in thoughts, ideas and suggestions folks might have about the advisability of playing acoustic bass, both arco and pizz from a sitting position. I originally learned standing up, but see some advantages to sitting, including the support of the bass, more relaxed position, and facilitating the thumb positions. I am interested in thoughts about this and whether people have found specific seats to be better than others, portability and whatever else.
: Thanks

I tried it once (using a stool) and the leader said "If I wanted a cello player I would have hired a cello player." Never touched one since. Al
