    The Best Of Double-Bass...

    Worlds greatest living Double-Bass player - listen to the interview and musical examples presented - the tone this guy coaxes out of the instrument is just phenomenal - this is why I also love the Double-Bass:

    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Do you want to know something? I have played a double bass. I had
    to stand on something so that I could reach some of the notes.
    I'm a bit on the short side. I'm 5 foot 2 inches and the double bass is
    6 feet and 3 inches tall. It can be a delima.

    Excellent playing. Nice to hear this instrument as a focal point.

    I just love blanket statements: the world's best double bass player.

    Totally subjective, true, a statement of fact, I don't think so.
