I am a church musician playing the electric bass (with 4 other guitarists) during Sunday guitar mass. I recently bought a beginners model upright acoutic bass just so I can learn the bowing technique. Plucking strings on the electric bass is not always appropriate for sacred music we play.
I am basically a self-taught musician, but can play well enough to be the bass player in a dance band, (that plays for hire only 4 to 5 times a year, on account of the other members being busy physicians like myself). However, I am starting from scratch with the use of the bow. I could use videos/tapes/or books that details the proper use of the bow.
There's a ton of material for the electric bass but hardly anything for the string bass! Any suggestions?
