I started playing DB about 8 months ago. I played only a few weeks with a French bow which made my hand cramp so I switch to German.(Partially because the guy in the store played German). I'm a husky guy and am having trouble playing the E string.(My body gets in the way). The guy in the store said he turns the bass out away from his body so that he can make that cut. I feel like the bass is out of control when I do this. Any suggestions?
