Hello All: If these have been answered elsewhere, feel free just to point me in the right direction. Question #1: Can anyone recommend a good ("Good" meaning clear, interactive, with many closeups) DVD for learning how to do rockabilly style slap bass? I'm a complete beginner on upright, by the way. My initial search finds that the one by Lee Rocker of the Stray Cats seems to be a popular one. Anyone have any experience with this DVD? Question #2: Now to open a real can of worms - What are the pros and cons of both French-style bowing and German style bowing? I was recently given a French bow, and have found it difficult and painful. I'm sure that's for several reasons: bad technique, need to get used to it. But I find myself wondering what German style is like in terms of comfort. I take it there's not a huge difference in sound - is this right?
