Hi Help required for total novice willing to put the effort in and learn.

Recommended Posts

Hi my names Mark.  I've always wanted to play a double bass rockabilly style. Ive just bought one. I live in Cumbria near Carlisle. I'm willing to put the effort in and learn. I've plenty of time on my hands as not working at the moment due to illness.

Im left handed!!! Ill try and learn right handed but if not i plan to get a Luthier to make it suitable to play left handed.

Im willing to travel! So can anyone recommend someone who offers lessons? Either North East, Northwest ie Lancashire! Or even Scotland?

I'd love to be good enough to play in a band thats my goal. 

Cheers Mark.

Hi Mark

Maybe you could trade music lessons for Snooker lessons....

I know, you've probably heard them all......

Mark, welcome. I am sure someone will come along from here with tutor suggestions, but you should also look at firsttutors.com and also musicteachersdirectory.org.

Hi Mark try Youtube i'm sure there'll be plenty of tuition videos on there....slap bass/rockabilly style, there's a Upright/Double Bass section right here on the Forum i'm sure there might be some reference to above style if you scroll down the pages but a lot is Jazz/Walking Bass...good luck.
