In this beginners upright bass lesson I show you the 6 most common problems that I see with left hand technique and of course, how to put them right!
I compiled this list of the issues I see most often in my students. It’s really easy to not realise you are making these mistakes, so check them out to make sure you are doing things the right way!
Establishing a great hand shape will transform your tuning. Stop worrying about intonation and start focusing entirely on the music.
Have you got any more problems to add to the list? Comment below to share what your ideas.
