Electric bass considered

Ya know, I am not a purist.

I am such an all around player that I could not exclude any one genre, let alone a relative of the low end. I love upright, probably the instrument that resonates with me the most and I focus a majority of my practice on it. I can express emotion very easily on the double bass.

I get so much work for the bass that I am constantly bouncing between Electric 5string and Upright. The people that hire me like it, and so do I (except hauling that much gear around in a tiny Honda Civic). So I have been reflecting on what I have learned on the electric and I feel it is worth sharing. Welcoming it into it’s bigger brother’s blog. I know that I am deeply inspired by both. I hope y’all feel the same.
