Just wanted to ask this question to see your opinions. I m a double bassist and am struggling a bit with pitch and getting the note spot on and my teacher is a stickler for perfection with the notes. He has been telling me to practice pitch by playing on a guiatr because the frets will guide me however the problem i find with this is that the because the guiatr is tuned and the right note is hit i am not training my ear very well and get lazy and just say yeah its that note a f sharp or a c. Anyway i was thinking of asking him next lesson if i could try a violin to play as it is similar to a bass although the tuning of strings is the other way round to hear the pitch as the spacings are a lot closer so i could hear the note change better. Also so i can keep practising my bowing instead of plucking like on guitar. And also is it good just to learn both in mu opinion i think learning both with compliment both instruments.
Thanks for all your feedback everyone, this is my first posts and i appriciate any tim you take to help me
