I just picked up this Cremona bass on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1417157673 I realize that Cremona isn't the best name but us BG players need to start somewhere. I have been real busy at work so it will be about a month before I can start taking lessons. lucky me I have a DB teacher about ten minutes away. my question is are there some books I can pick up so I can get started? I don't want to pickup any bad habits at the beginning of my journey. I am assuming that hand positions are the place to start. thanks for any input.
