I`m playing electric bass and I wanted to start upright, too, because it`s such a fascinating instrument. The problem is, that both instrument are, what technique is concerned, very different. I was wondering, whether somebody of you can post his experiences in terms of practising time, which bass do you practise most, how do you get along with your profession/university and the double bass, how fast did you develop, etc. Something about my situation: I`m playing in a jazz/funk/jazz-rock-trio. However, I`m not only interested in jazz, but rock and a lot of other music styles, too. Thanks for your answers.
