Hello, I stumbled across this group just surfing the web looking at upright basses.. I have never played the bass but want to learn.. I love listening to and playing bluegrass and old time music. I am an intermediate guitar player I guess and like to flat pick.. The bass has been intriguing me for awhile now and I’d like to try my hand at it.. of course, I’m going to need a bass, and that’s what’s led me to this group.. I’m just beginning to look at upright basses and have no idea what I should get... I’m trying to keep this as low budget as possible and still get an instrument that is not going to need a lot of repairs or be hard to play.. I’ll probably be taking it to outdoor festivals and it will get exposed to the elements at times.. I’ve heard the older Kay models are popular in the bluegrass world but I really don’t know anything... what size? 3/4 full size? Anyway... just wanted to introduce myself and I’m sure there is lots of good info on the site I’ll be able to search out... looks like a great resource you have here!
