Ok So I'm really new to the bass but learning very quick. I admire Tubin's double bass concerto that I had to find this piece of music. The problem is that it's written for orchestral strings and not solo tuning, and is an octave lower than what I hear in videos of other people playing it. The problem is that some of the notes seem to fall below the "E" string. It might be a silly question but: What do bassist do when the occurs? If I play it an octave higher it just doesn't sound right!!
