Hi, I'm going to try and learn to play bass guitar, mainly for theory and jazz purposes. I'm already pretty proficient on double bass when it comes to orchestral technique if I do say so myself, but I know I'm entering a whole new realm with the bass guitar.
I'm mainly looking for general advice from anyone on here, but especially those who started on the string bass before moving to bg.
-What's the difference between the standard left-hand positioning on the db vs. bg?
-Are there any good method/etude books for the instrument, specifically for a 5-stringed bg?
And any general tips and advice you guys have would help tremendously.
