Hi. I want this blog to be a way you can access information. You've got to be careful on the Internet, there are a lot of people giving advice, not all of which will lead you down the right road. I'm a trained orchestral musician and I play in Dunedin's only semi-professional orchestra, the Southern Sinfonia.
I've already added some interesting links, take time to check them out. You'll notice that one of the links is to a site called Richard's Bass Bag. He's a music teacher who plays a bit of bass as a hobby. Some of his posts are reasonably humerous, but, before taking his bass advice, you'd wise to check out one of the more reputable sites like Jason Heath's Double Bass Blog or Jonas Lohse's Double Bass guide. I'm sure that Richard (of Richard's Bass Bag) won't be offended by me saying that. After all, he'd be the first to admit that he's only an amateur player.
Yours in music and the arts,
