Hey 'yall... I just signed up on this forum today to ask a question. Any help or suggestions I could get would be greatly appreciated... The other night I went to go see some psychobilly bands and I got to see a group called the HorrorPops. I really liked their style, and especially the sound of the bass. I've been playing electric bass for 7 years now, and I have very little experience playing an upright, but I have done it before when I was required to. I don't know anything about double basses, and I want to know what kind of double bass is good for playing those slap-style rockabilly basslines. I mean, I played the bass at my high school a few times, but the bass that Patricia from the HorrorPops was playing was much thinner. It didn't look nearly as bulky. Any help or suggestions that anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated... BTW if you guys don't know the group that I'm talking about, click here and listen to the free MP3's they offer on the side, if that'll help you determine what it's gonna take for me to do that kind of stuff. Thanks a lot!
