An upright is just big and hard to play but as your left hand gets stronger and used to the wide spacing of notes, you can move around pretty well. My bass lines with the upright have become more sparse, melodic and to my ear, more musical.

I really love the upright, its sound, and just the overall vibe of having somewhat control of such and unwieldy instrument and well worth the effort. I've been playing upright almost exclusively and almost never play bass guitar unless the venue is very cramped.

My advice to people wanting to play an upright is don't buy a cheap Chinese bass like I did. They self destruct over time.
Buy something around at least 1k and have it set up professionally.

Just wondered if youse blues bassmen investigated some classical chops or if you just went straight to learning to boogie?

cheers,
