Double Bass photo from Wikipedia
At times confused with acoustic bass guitar, double bass otherwise known as bass violin is the largest and lowest-pitched bowed string instrument in the violin family. It is played with a bow or plucking strings. The bassists either stands or sits when playing the instrument leaning it against his body to better reach the strings. Music lovers all over the world would terribly enjoy listening to a symphony orchestra where a combination of musical instruments merge in a masterpiece that soothes the soul.
