Playing Chords On The Double Bass

Playing chords on the double bass is a really satisfying thing. The instrument seems to shine in this setting, especially with simple 2 note chords. In this video I talk you though my approach to playing chords and teach you to my composition ‘Out of Focus’ which is featured at the start.

Chords are also a fantastic way of monitoring your intonation by referencing your ‘stopped’ note, with an open string.

I hope you enjoy the lesson and my composition and if you have any feedback or lesson requests please leave a comment at the bottom of this page.
