I am a relatively recent upright jazz bassist, and I just bought a bow to improve my intonation. I do not have a regular teacher, but I follow a few books, all of which give valuable advise on how to bow, but none on how and when to use the rosin, or on how to deal with the tension of the bow.
I would be grateful for any advise regarding the care I should have to the instrument and to the bow, and especially how to apply the rosin on the bow and how to clean it off the strings after playing. Thank you.
