Hey everyone. New guy here! Some background.. I've been playing the double bass since september 09 with focus on jazz, but since the winter holidays I've become more and more interested in playing some classical music, mostly for the sake of intonation. I ordered a finale bow (from stringemporium.com) and a book named De Haske's Double Bass Playtime. I was now ready to get started. Now here's the issue: I keep hitting harmonics when I'm bowing open strings. I don't really know what to do about it since I don't have a teacher to tell me what I'm doing wrong. I haven't practiced that much either, especially not consistently. Will this issue be solved by itself or do I need to change something? Since i probably do, some guidelines would be much appreciated! A teacher would be great, of course, but there are none in the area where I currently live. Sorry for my poor english. Hope this has been readable!
