Good Bye Double Bass


It was time to say good bye to my Double Bass adventure.

It has been picked up again to travel back home.

What a great adventure and experience it was!

It is an amazing instrument and not that easy. It made me admire and respect the Bass players who so easily improvise.

I had such a great time learning it

I loved every minute of it.

I can only recommend,
if you want to try something you are passionate about...
go for it....
have fun,
you might love it,
and you will always remember it.

Here are some Blues I learnt with ‘You Tube’ backing tracks:

12 Bar Blues in C
Jazz Blues in F – Improvising
Bags’ Groove 140bpm

To finish off a riff

Hope you enjoyed the odd Blues.

I have recorded more so I can always listen and remember the time with my Double Bass fondly.

A big THANK YOU to my sister who made this adventure possible.

    • Thank you for both compliments. Yes I did get blisters, but that was at the beginning. That is why, I realize now, the minimum hire is 3 months. After 3 months the fingers have adjusted and the 4th month I had was no hurting or blisters. 🙂

  1. What a good idea to try something new for a while! I like the idea that there is much to be gained even if the level of expert is not achieved. I look forward to seeing what your next adventure is. Also, beautiful instrument! And I love a cozy sweater!

    • I just wanted to have a go at it as it was always my dream, I know I never join an orchestra but I had the greatest fun ever and I did learn to handle it. I am very happy with my progress. This sweater is realy cozy and does keep me warm! 🙂

  2. Bravo to you for taking up such a challenge – playing an instrument requires commitment, even moreso when the instrument is bigger than you are !

    • Haha, true and it was really heavy too. As I learnt to play piano, I can read notes so that was an advantage for me. Yet it is a completely different instrument and I practised every day as it was so much fun. It helps me with m y guitar playing much more too now. ♥

  3. Wow – you sound so good, Ute!
    I know it is quite a jourey to learn how to play this instrument and you really seem to have gotten tha hang of it in quite the short amount of time.
    Thank you for sharing the joy, this adventure brought to you!

Love to hear from you......
