Hiya...I'm new here, but I need a burning question answered ASAP... I've been playing electric bass for almost 3 years, and now that I'm due to graduate from college next year, the possibility of me gunning for a degree in music has opened up. I also play the violin, but being self-taught and all, I doubt I've got much of a chance of being accepted into the violin program. Recently, the upright bass has seriously caught my eye (and ear...oh my, it DEFINITELY caught my ear ) and while I'm not saying its an instrument for amateurs, I'm aware that one doesn't have to have studied it since age 10 to get good at it. I also think that studying it in a classical setting will be more consistent with my training as an electric bassist. Anyway, to get into the college, you have to pass a theory exam and an audition. But what on earth do you play on bass that's worthy of an audition? The bassline of Pachelbel's Canon in D hardly seems to be a good piece for something as important as that... Thanks any info woould be REALLY appreciated.
