Hey, hey double bassers. I've been on the bass guitar forum for quite a while now but have yet to talk down here on the DB board. whatsup? anyway, i really came down here to ask what steps i should take towards getting into the upright bass. I have grown to love the sound and look of the upright and am very interested in learning to play it. I have been playing Bass guitar for about a year and a half now and have gotten pretty good in that amount of time but i'm slowly becoming more and more interested in different styles of music (mainly country and bluegrass, a little jazz aswell) and have noticed that all these styles depend on the upright bass most of the time. Besides, i personally think it takes more skill to play the upright than the BG and I am all about that. So, what i'm getting at is if anyone has any good suggestions regarding the steps I should take towards adopting the double or upright bass as my main weapon i'd really apreciate it. Thanks guys! PS, as of now I don't have much money, so keep that in mind when you post your suggestions.
