Switching to Electric Double Bass

Discussion in 'Basses [DB]' started by mr. double bass, Jun 16, 2001.


  1. I am Chris and I have been playing the double bass for a couple of years now thanks to a brillant Double Bass teacher who I will talk about again.
    Anyhow I sadly have to leave my teacher and move to college in Norway where I am told there is a jazz band and an electric double bass . Wow! you may think but how hard is it to switch from orchestral bass to jazz bass and to an electric double bass?
    I wonder if any jazz bassits have done this or if others are able to play both. Please e-mail me if this is so or post a message on here . e-mail cmjones_wales@talk21.com
