Hey everyone, So, I finally decided to just do it and jump in to get things going. Last week the NS Design basses were 15% off on Amazon, so I got an NXT 4 double bass, and I start upright lessons tomorrow. Don't have a bow yet, but I'll be "fixing" that issue this coming week. Long term, I'm hoping to move from EUB to "real" upright in time - once I have money for a good upright and more importantly, space to keep and practice with one. But, for now, EUB will let me get started with the foundation. I've been playing bass guitar for about 12 years now, but I can't remember a time when I've been so excited to play an instrument. I'm also looking forward to how this changes my approach on BG. 2014 is going to be a very interesting year for me, musically!
