              Very nice Bassius! I have to admit, I've always had double bass envy. The tones...the sound...physicality of playing...ahhhhhh...one of these days. Bass in it's purest form...I love it!

                My biggest comment is this:

                Ever since all of this neck and nerve **************** started 12 years ago, I've been lucky when I can play upright at all, let alone with the the higher action that Bassius uses. Which is really within the common range for an upright.

                Sure, it gives you the ability for much greater volume and emphasis on tone, and attack, and aids in bowing cleanly, and probably a few other things. But it also takes 2 to 3 times the strength for fingering cleanly, and I'm in retrain-the-muscles mode. I cheat, and drop my adjustable bridge as low as I can get away with for pizz., about 1/4" to 5/16" string heighth at the end of the fingerboard.

                I hope some day to play as good as him in that video.
                YUM!!!

                  Thanks guys.

                  I have a left hand section coming, a scale fingerings section and a pizz performance.
                  then...arco stuff!

                    Two comments about being nude and sticky stuff in 5 replies... This place hasn't lost its flair!

                    And the videos are fantastic. Now I want an URB.

                      Three points:

                      1. My desire for a URB has now become a physical need.

                      2. You've got someone who teaches you? How good must that guy be!

                      3. Post more. I don't even know what "arco stuff" is, but I feel my life is empty without seeing it. (I just hope it isn't "This is how to change a string!")

                          I liked the video a lot! Proper URB technique is a huge turn on for me. You could probably cut out the gear stuff out of the video if you wanted.

                            And like everyone else said, you have created huge amounts of upright GAS, Mr. Bassius.
