: Also, does anyone know of any other strange or unusual sounds or "tricks" to get sounds on upright? I play mostly free jazz and these things are effective to use in certain situations.
Do a gliss in the normal manner. As your left hand reaches the bottom of the fingerboard, do a left hand pizz while at the same time start a right hand gliss at the nut and repeat with alternate hands, thereby achieving a series of glisses. It's a great technique for getting the attention of the other bassists in my section and may be useful for your purposes.
