Drop the Bass!

Recently, the father of one of our children came in to play the double bass for us!  I have to admit, I was not overly familiar with the double bass (ok, I thought it was the same as a cello), but I learned a lot!  The double bass is also called an upright bass, bass fiddle or bass violin.  It is in the violin family and is the largest and lowest pitched bowed string instrument. It stands about six feet tall, and towered over our little ones!  They enjoyed plucking on the strings and feeling the vibrations through the body of the instrument.

Being a Dad, he was well versed in children’s songs, so we had a great time singing along to some classics like “Old MacDonald”, “B-I-N-G-O” and “Mary Had a Little Lamb”.  Thanks so much for sharing your music with us!  It was a new experience for all of us!
