: I am an experienced electric bassist. I play both fretted and fretless electric bases. I am now interested in purchasing a double bass. As I prefer not to study with anyone at this time, does anyone know of a book or other information online I can read or access that will help me to determine where to place my hand along the neck to pinpoint the notes. In other words, where does first position end and second position begin, etc...? Playing in tune on this monster can't be easy, but it's a welcomed challenge for me. I'd greatly appreciate it if anyone coul e-mail any helpful information regarding this matter.
Check out Rufus Reid's book The Evolving Bassist. This book is a classic for all
basses and, most importantly for you, provides pictures of where to place your
left hand, right hand, even how to carry an upright on a plane. Good luck!
