Hi! What are some basic things to learn about the switch from bass guitar to double bass? I´ve been playing bass guitar for more then 15 years now, the last six or seven it was fretless most of the time. I always wanted to get my hands on a double bass and few months ago I got it. It was in very bad condition and a lot of work was needed to set it up, but now it´s almost finished. Now I don´t know where to begin. However similar it seems, there´s still a lot of differences between those two instruments and the way they´re played. One thing is the fret board: my fretless bass is fully marked, when I started using it that was a great help and I really like it that way. Now the double bass comes and with it a question: should I put some marks on the fret board or leave it the way it is. Marks would sure help me to find my way on the beginning, but...? Also a completely new issue of using a bow... I guess some of you have been through something similar and found the answers to those questions. So, if you can offer some advice or maybe name a book that could help solving my problems, please do. Thanks a lot in advance!
