Greetings all!! Lately, I've been doing some reading on some of the great upright bassists, e.g. LaFaro, Chambers, etc. Being solely an electric player, my interest has been piqued by some of these players. Anyway--here is my question. I've come across references to different tunings used by double bassists. They are always refered to as " orchestral" and " solo " tuning. Unfortunately, there is never an explanation provided. (I guess the writers always assume that they only write for double bassists!!). What is the difference between these two tunings and in what situations are they used? Any information will be appreciated!
