    I did a quick search and didn't find a thread where anyone can post your own youtube video.
    Sorry if there is already something of the same nature.
    But anyway, for now I thought I'd get started.
    here's the link:

    yeah, that's cool.
    I am going for the most abstract I can get while still thinking of the structure.
    obviously I am rushing and it's a little sloppy at some places. But I am sure that if I had a metronome going it would be easier to follow. Although i am sure if you listen to it a couple of more times, you'll hear it.
    I am also working on leaving lots of space. But that's much harder in my opinion. I'll post a video when I feel more comfortable with that kind of concept.
    Thank you.

    OK, It's not me, but it's my daughter, and I pay for all her equipment!!

     
  16. This is me, with my trio:
     
  17. That's some pretty fast playing there Bijoux. Did you have those chops on electric and move them over to upright?

    Nice tune there Fabian, kind of reminded me of the Meldau Trio vibe. Very enjoyable.

    I think each instrument borrowed and exchanged techniques. In fact I use only 3 fingers on electric bass a la Simandl. I feel that shifting is easy enough because of the shorter scale length, and I get more of a smooth transition and economy of motion.
    As far as the upright I just practice a lot, and my string height is pretty moderate. I have arthritis and whenever I raise the action too much my hands get sore for a few days. Occasionally I'll do it if I really want to play a gig acoustically only.
    Thank you for the comment.
     
  19. Thanks for watching, Jason, and for the kind words!
     
  20. I'm not playing bass in this, but I am conducting. Enjoy, let me know what you think!
