    Hello fellas,
    A couple years ago, reading about the origin of the double bass, I get an information that make me curious, and changed my life. The tuning and strings quest along the years… to be short... I had a special interest about the 3 strings bass era, and a quick search on the web, show me some incredible contemporary 3 strings gypsies players, so i tried to bring that approach to my side, trying to match that slap technique (used on a lot of styles like bluegrass, rockabilly) to the brazilian percussive flavor, maybe, I can be alone on that route, but I feel it could be more useful than only traditional pizz. Im not trying to be a “different guy” or something like that, I adopted it only because I feel comfortable and have good result playing that way, so... If you guys have some interest to see, here is a link to a vídeo. Hope you enjoy!
