    Yep, I’ve read every bow post going back to Aug 2000.

    Started a few weeks is back. Too much available time without daily gigs and rehearsals.
    So if I’m not practicing bass, running with the dog or cycling I’m reading old posts.

    What I’ve learned? Some topics keep repeating, over and over ...and over. Bass bows and expert technique styles are incredibly varied. An open mind helps with bass bowing. No one is above learning more.

    Some posts that look to be dopey can have hidden gems by knowledgeable responders.

    Some posters ask the same question every few years. Why can’t they figure it out?
    They get correct answers. Perhaps they have poor memories.

    There are posters that are very worth listening to. When they comment it is worth taking notice of what they say.

    This ‘A Team’ list includes:
    MikeCanada
    Ken Smith always right always arrogant
    Don Higdon dark humour and witty
    PaulCannon
    Jon Stefaniak
    and others.

    I am following David Allen Moore’s German Bow course on Discover Double Bass and I have learned a lot from MikeCanada’s posts here as well. David Potts always gives great advice with associated exercices to improve.

    I have also taken Damon Smith’s Simandl advice to heart. As a teacher-less, 40+ year old former sportball player, it has been slow going learning to read bass clef but I am loving the bowed sound I am getting from open strings and 1/2 position. It really does make everything else I play (bluegrass and cover tunes) sound better.
