so..i play elecric bass at home..have played for almost two years. i play alto sax in jazz band and concert band at school..and i love music. i believe that i will be able to take three courses of music my senior year..and i would personally love to add orchestra to the mix. because of that, i am seriously considering taking private lessons and learning to play the DB, and then by the 2007-2008 school year be in orchestra (if it were to go well, i would attempt to continue studying DB in orchestra). i'm asking what do you all of you feel the switch is like from EB to DB, and wether or not it's a good idea. is learning the DB very hard when all you've played is EB? what are all the pros and cons of having already played EB? what kinda things are gonna be difficult for me in the get go, and what is it like playing DB in an orchestra compared to..lets say EB at home or in a jazz band or rock band? any other opinions or suggestions would also be appreciated.
