The upright bass or also known as the double bass, is one string instrument that has superseded its popularity as a orchestra staple to being more known or even expected in jazz and bluegrass music. The double bass still serves an important role in orchestras whether from classical music or film scores (everyone’s familiar with the sound of Jaws where the upright bass is featured). Upright bassists typically will traverse genres and may even pick up the electric bass to further diversify their skills. Since there are no frets, many advanced electric bass players may opt to learn the upright bass to gain the skill of improved pitch or bowing.
