Sorry for the hiatus....what a busy time in my life! Now that I have transitioned back into school, it will be easier for me to post while I am in the practice room.
Last time we talked about how to hold the bass and getting comfortable with the different set up of the instrument. In this lesson, we explore the differences in sound and technique between orchestral and jazz pizzicato styles.Remember to use the meat of your fingers for jazz pizzicato and more of the edge of you fingers for orchestral pizz. Of course there is no one way to do anything, but these are the foundational techniques in achieving a good sound.
Remember to experiment with all of the techniques we talked about. There is always more than one way to do everything....as long as you do it without tension!
