Due to scheduling conflicts, I've been unable to play in my University's orchestra for the past 3 years (I know...it sucks). But I still needed to get my classical bass on, so I talked to the band director and I'm currently playing in the Wind Symphony, and doing this hasn't really been a problem since I've got a lot of experience playing in band from high school (yeah...I know...I played clarinet. Sorry.) Now I know that the majority of wind symphony music is currently being written and arranged with double bass parts. What I was curious about is if anyone else here has experience doing this and if they've got any kind of advice/stories/ideas on the differences and whatnot of doing this.
