This is my first post here in the Double Bass Forum. Kinda scared. Seriusly though. I've recently started playing with some local cats. They play both bluegrass and gypsy jazz. Recently moving more towards gypsy jazz. Thier bass player recently quit. Its defently a cool style. I really dig the music they've given me to listen to. Django and Robin Nolan. I noticed some jazz standards on the Nolan cd. So the reson why I started this thread. Some tips would be great. I know I have to get an upright. I played one in college. But I have more experience on the BG(12 years). I tried playing with my electric and it just doesn't give the music justice. Listening to some of the bass players lines, it seems some walk and some keep it sinple. Well im open for any tips as I start to learn this new style of music (gypsy jazz). Oh yeah anyone know who's Robyn Nolans bassit is? I was impressed by his tone, and just how he adds so much life to the music.
