Hi, a question from a total beginner with a new double bass and a couple of lessons under her belt. Bear with me, please! Although I am more interested in jazz, I've enjoyed old timey music live before. A friend of mine suggested a bluegrass/old timey music as an easy starting point with a lot of of simple root 5 intervals. I don't have any understanding yet of chord progressions - although this is something I'm keen to internalise competently ASAP. In fact, there is an informal bluegrass jam near me every week - could that be a good start to playing simple things? Would love any advice!! Thanks so much.
