I'll admit to having a good chuckle watching some of the YouTube Symphony Orchestra auditions. Most of the players are fine...it was just the 2010 audition piece did not translate to a "solo performance" very well. But...I have neither the chops, time....or guts to actually audition myself. The 2011 YouTube Symphony audition deadline is just 10 days away as I write this (November 28th, 2010 to be exact) and I think it would be great to see some of you try. Send me your link of your audition and I promise not to even snicker the slightest bit! In fact, I'll send you a "mystery gift", courtesy of Upton Bass, just for doing so!

So, without further ado, I bring you some Friday night double bass goodness!

And remember...if you have ANY links, news, videos, etc. you want to share, eMail it to me at eroy@uptonbass.com and I'll be sure to share it. Oh...and if you just want to say "Hi" you can do that too!

Have a nice weekend!

Michael Silverman, whose double bass inspired instrument can be frequently heard in our Stonington workshop in the middle of the day when a driving beat helps the wood chips hit the floor faster, has been getting some press down under. Check him out!
