In this short video I teach you how to tighten a double bass bow. The lesson will work with both French and German pattern bows. I also give you a few tips on bow care such as how you should store your double bass bow. Learning to use the bow is essential for all double bassists, regardless of the style of music you play. I hope you will find this lesson useful and make arco practice a regular part of your practice routine.
I hope you enjoy the lesson and if you want more like this one please check out my course ‘Beginner’s Double Bass’. It’s over 5 hours long and contains 30 minutes of lessons on arco technique.
