Bottesini Gran Duo Tuning
Hi everyone! Being the masochist that I am, I'm going to learn the Bottesini Gran Duo with an amazing violinist from school. I have no doubt in my mind that we're both capable of learning it; but my question is what tuning is used for the bass part? The music that I have has the solo bass part written in B-flat. I have no problem with transposing the bass part, but if I can avoid it by using the proper tuning, that would be great.
I can only assume that solo tuning is the preferred tuning setup for this music.
Currently in the process of building my own double bass.
