Bass Lessons

Welcome new double bass player!  This is where you can start if you are new to the double bass, or even if you have played for a while and you don’t want to miss any basics.

All of these lessons are different that other lessons that you may have come across.  I am presenting them as my step-by-step journal and commentary from an adult student’s perspective as I learn how to play the double bass.  In each lesson I will what I have just learned, any struggles I have had and how I have grown.  I welcome your comments and questions on each one.

Before we get started with learning how to play, I want to get some fundamental questions answered. This section will really help you get the most of this course so check it out!  If you want, you can subscribe to the blog to receive every post by email or you can subscribe to my RSS feed.  Both are located in the column on my home page.
