Dear lord...all I need is more GAS. I've been doing so well the past couple of years. Now I find an old interest has resurfaced and I'm already scheming on ways to acquire... an URB. Yup. I've only played one a few times...I can play fretless and played violin for a time, so I think I can learn to navigate the fretboard and use a bow over time (though bowed URB wouldn't be my first interest...) I dunno...I used to always think of getting one. Wanted one really bad in fact, on a few occasions over the years, but always considered it so impractical. Then I was listening to some Mingus this evening and it hit me. Real. Bad. I know there's a TB forum for URB, and I'm sure I'll be spending some time there soon. I sure don't intend to forsake the electric bass, but I do love the double bass. Always have. I may not be able to stop myself, fellas... Anyone here play both? Tips, pointers, etc. before I check out the other forum?
