So I finally have my first double bass , it’s an Upton Bohemian hybred 7/8 and I am very infatuated with it for sure. All I want to do is play a bit of arco . No easy task for sure . I have searched and found no teacher anywhere in my area. If there were ever an instrument where a teacher is most beneficial this is it. To the point, I am struggling with the spirocore strings that are on it and I am wondering if anyone can recommend strings for newbie arco players .
