Well ive just picked up an upright after playing electric for a long time and ive been having a bit of trouble trying to figure out how much rosin is enough or too much. Now I know im suppose to get lessons to learn all of the small details that really make the difference and all that but i really cant afford expensive lessons nor could i find a bass teacher to tell me these little things who's in my area, I think im learning fine on my own anyways. But thats beside the point. I can't seem to get the right amount of rosin. My sister has a cello, and when i play it the strings make a wonderful tone and i dont even have to use that much effort, and the rosin catches right away when i change from an upstroke to a downstroke. With my bass I received a brand new bow and started to rosin it, i have to press harder to even make a decent tone and i cant play even 8th or 16th notes simply because the bow seems to slip when I change bowing directions and it takes a second for the rosin on the bow to catch again. I'm assuming I have too little, although I have rosined it quite a bit. It'd be great if someone could help me out here, thanks in advance!
