As I was patting myself on the back for saving a little cash buying my first upright bass last year and doing my own setup work (carving a new adjustable bridge, setting the soundpost, replacing the endpin and strings, planing the fingerboard, etc.), I made a statement in another thread that I found out what I needed to know to accomplish this by learning everything from my local library. That isn't entirely true. I'm a big fan of the public library system, but I owe thanks to Bob Gollihur for his outstanding website and the valuable information he has made available for free to myself as well. I could just send this thanks to Bob, but I felt like putting it here since I've been posting to this site a little bit and this post can be seen by more than just one person. I assert that learning to play AND learning to work on the bass go together to give one more to offer to those whose ear and mind one catches, and I'm glad Bob's site was around to help me walk the talk (and save some dough). So, Thanks Bob.
