A conversation in the pub a few months ago has resulted in the most splendid christmas present - a 3/4 double bass!

I'm a classically trained keyboardist who has latterly been playing much blues and a little jazz and this is a great present as I want to get into bass playing.

The question is: what should I do now? Its in pride of place on its stand, my daughter has named it (sorry him) Bruno, its in tune and I've been having a trial go but would appreciate all and any advice from you guys out there.

I'm assuming a 3/4 bass is perfectly adequate for a starter. Should I be planning to upgrade to a full size when and if I get more proficient?

What about pickups/bugs - what's the advice on this?

I do hope you can help

All the best
