A Double Bass is not tuned in 5ths; it is tuned in 4ths like the electric. I don't know where the "Brewmeister got this information, but it's wrong!! I've been a professional upright player for 14 years. the only real difference is fingering. We do not use our third finger (ring) until you start playing in thumb position. If you want a good bass to start on, try Bass Viol Shop at 800-622-1855, or Lemur Musical Research at 800-246-BASS and ask for Murray Grodner. He should be able to help you. Should you have any more questions, email me at VBass I hope this helps. : A Double Bass (an Upright Bass), is totally different... especially since the Tuning is different its tuned in 5ths... EBFC instead of EADG Which can be confusing

: : hey home skillets. I have played electric bass for a wile now but i cant get enough of that acoustic bass sound. I need to know of a web site were i could learn to play one. keep in mind ive only touched on once and i didnt sound very good. i would also like some imput on what type to buy for a begginer upright player.(I need it cheap). I want one that will sound good in my jazz sextet.also, any advise on finger playing and walking bass. Is it the same as on electric bass? any suggestions would be very helpfull. all my thanx (the Brewmeister)
