It's a month now, since I switched from electric to double bass. (Jazz,pizz, but begun arco last week) I've been practising hard ever since I begun, a couple of hours every day - at least. (You should have seen my fingers the first week.) Anyway, I'm practising all the major scales in two octaves. Today I also did C major in thumb position. But it's still pretty god damn out of tune. Especially in thumb position, but also in the middel part, like when I go from D to C on the G- streng, while descending. How long did it took you to play, like, the major scales in tune? I practise with band in a box, and I annoy myself to death all the time. Will this never come to an end? : Thanks guys, helpful as always!
