    Hey Hi.
    A shout out to any and all Double Bassists residing in South Africa.(If there are any aside from myself ???? Cant believe I'm actually saying/typing this. )
    OK as I stated above , are there any other Double Bassists residing in the Johannesburg / Gauteng area ?
    I would love to chat with/to any and all regarding Pizzicato and Arco related topics if they're up for it.
    I am having a rather hard time finding any Double Bass enthusiasts at all as well as other people in my area who are music fanatics trying to learn and understand sheet music / score.
    Feeling a tad like I am the last of my kind ,amateur dramatics aside .

    You're on the Bass Guitar side, so no wonder you feel a bit lonely - have a nice moderator move the thread over to the Upright bass side. :)
