Thread Name: Double Bass: Why called?
Subject: RE: Double Bass: Why called?
I go to Ponte Caffaro (northern Italy) every year for Carnevale, and to meet many of my friends the musicians and some of the dancers of the wonderful local group, One of the instruments is a Basetti or Single Bass...only three strings and played with a very short bow,
tuned to a chord and used mainly as a percussive instrument. Do a google search for Ponte Caffaro to see them in action
