Hello, I have been playing the double bass for quite a while. I am in my high school orchestra, and our conductor has made a scale project for all of the students. I have to play one by the end of this week (last day Friday) for my teacher. I have decided to play the G major scale three octave, as I have played the ones that were two octave. My problem is that I do not know how to place my hand correctly or the fingering for notes past the G harmonic. We have never had notes higher than that area in our orchestral music, and I do not have a private teacher at all. I know how to play the G major scale two octave almost perfectly, but it's the third octave messing me up. I try to play it with random fingers, but I do not sound very well, and I feel very STUPID doing that. Does anyone have a description or pictures of how to do notes past the g harmonic? We never learned in high school, but I'll ask my conductor tomorrow. I just feel frustrated since I have a lot of other schoolwork to do also before progress report grades are due! EDIT: Everyone received papers with three octave scales on it. The basses reach up to the second octave, stop, then rejoin the orchestra when they go down the second one. I just don't understand, sorry to trouble you!
