Hey, My DB experience as begun! Just got home with my rental. Some chinese bass (Samuel Eastman?). Couldn't help fooling around. Anyone know anything about these basses? Im loving upright. Don't worry. I've read my share of newbie links. I'll start lessons in a week or so. (might get my first with John Lockwood!) Anyone have any tips for a starry eyed ultra DB newbie such as myself? I've fooled around a little bit, tried to get some decent intonation (and failed for the most part). I'm making sure not to remember any of the bad habits, such as my horrible left hand techique... Any tips?
