Whether you’re into the smooth sound and cool look of the double bass and want to give it a try, or are a classically trained musician wanting to switch it up, picking up an instrument for the first time can be a bit intimidating no matter your skill level. For new and seasoned string musicians, there is a beginner method book out there to help you along the road to becoming an accomplished double bass player.  Standing six feet tall from scroll to endpin, the double bass finds its home in the string section of the orchestra and is played either with a bow or by plucking the string with your fingers. To play this larger-than-life instrument you either need to stand or sit on a high stool with the bass leaning back towards you. Once you’ve sorted out how to maneuverer your double bass, the real fun of learning how to play begins.

If it’s your first time ever picking up the double bass, grab a copy of the Alfred String Explorer Book 1. This method study guide breaks down the basics of the instrument from right and left hand techniques through to the history of stringed instruments. Geared toward younger musicians, this book takes a fun approach to teaching as students follow two adventurers on their musical journey through the world of string playing.

For more seasoned musicians, there are method books that focus more on playing music than on the explanation of strings, notes and sounds. The KJOS Solos and Etudes books feature 57 solos and 67 etudes and are written in unison format for the violin, viola, cello and double bass. From Brahms to Telemann, these books focus on developing a classical sound that is suited towards an orchestral setting or smaller string ensemble.

No matter where you want to go with your musical career, you always have to start with the basics. The double bass is definitely a challenging instrument to tackle, but with the right tools and resources, you’ll be plucking out tunes in less time than you ever thought possible.
