Hi Everyone!

My friend recently asked me to write a double bass concerto for her! She told me that she wanted it in G major; I said I will write it for her but the problem is... I HAVE NEVER WRITTEN FOR SOLO DOUBLE BASS IN MY LIFE!!! Can someone please tell me how to write for double bass. Things like scordatura, chords, do's and don't's will greatly be appreciated! (By the way, this concerto is in a classical style so instrumentation is early classical as well.) If you want me to upload it, let me know!

Thank You!

Surely you'll find information on the internet, if not in some textbook. But also, I think it's good to see scores for double bass, in this case, and listen to the pieces on youtube at the same time.
