Double Bass Harmonic
Maarten Bauer posted a topic in Advice and TechniquesHello, Currently, I am writing a piece including Double Bass. I want to have the Bassist play a natural harmonic, but I cannot find a correct solution for the notation like in the following passage: (Do not mind the red notes) (The notes sound an octave lower) The result of the harmonic is an A4, but the open string is a D2 and the fingering an F2, with the result of 7 ledger lines... If I write the harmonic in the treble clef the passage is as follows: Although there are less ledger lines (4) I think this looks terrible too and I don't know if a bassist is able to read so many ledger lines below the treble clef. I have thought about using the tenor, alto or soprano clef, but is this allowed? Can bassist read these clefs? Do you have any advice for me? Maarten
