Holding the bow

How does one hold a double bass bow?

Michael Hopkin's String Pedagogy Notebook gives an interesting and easy-to-understand guide to holding the bow.

In particular, readers who are interested to learn how to hold the bow of the double bass, may like to visit the following pages from Michael Hopkin's String Pedagogy Notebook:
It is hoped that you will find the above resources helpful.

Another helpful resource to refer to on this topic would be Dr. Mark Morton's Double Bass Technique: Concepts and Ideas.

It's always nice to see a blog about music and musical instruments! I play the piano, guitar and the clarinet, but never had any experience with bass.

And may i just say that I totally love your site's layout! The crispness of the pics compliment the background very well! And I kid you not! :)
