I started a new blog called "Musings on a String Bass." In it I hope to provide a learning path for others who want to play the bass. There is a lot of information on the web, but it is scattered and disjointed and very hard to follow. So I am going to try to take info from the web and from my own knowledge and put the info into a comprehensible and systematic series of bass topics designed to help new bassists learn to play.
This is not only to help others learn; it will help me too.
Here's the link.
