In this beginner lesson I teach you everything you need to know, before you actually start playing. If the double bass height is wrong, or you are not standing correctly, you will never be able to align your hands and play with good technique.
The bass is such a large instrument that you really want to be comfortable and relaxed when playing. This lesson should help you achieve that. Spend the time now to make sure you give yourself the best start possible. This material is essential if you are new to the double bass, especially if you come from a bass guitar background where the process is quite different.
I would also recommend checking out my lesson on the optimum sitting posture for double bass. It will really help you get your playing off to a good start.
I hope you enjoy the lesson and if you have any questions or feedback please join the conversation and leave a comment below.
