Is Your Info Safe?
A few customers have been asking about whether or not your information and passwords at Gollihur Music are safe. Just to set your mind at ease, our SSL Server does not use the version that is vulnerable to the "Heartbleed Bug" that you've probably been hearing a lot about lately. So your data is safe here, and there's no imminent need to change your password or do anything to protect your information at Gollihur Music. However, do keep in mind that good password practice is to use a unique password at every site and change it often.

A partially completed page entitled "The Bass Education Project" provided access to and hosted images of double bass fingerboard positions. It is no longer available on the web (though you might be able to use this archived copy at the Wayback Machine), and since this is a much-requested item, I will host them as a courtesy to my fellow players.

As you click on any of the listed positions, a separate window will open with the image inside, ready to print or review. You may also simply download the .gif images by right-clicking on each and choosing "save as" or whatever command your browser provides.



I hope that the author of that page will contact me if he reposts his project; I will be glad to link to the new net location. Meanwhile, I will host this resource.

Here is one of the charts for your reference:







The Fine Print: The information contained herein is based on what's in my brain and/or my opinions as of today and is subject to change. Like any topic, a great deal more information could be added—but the intent of these writings is to present easy to understand, quick FAQs, to address common questions and improve the reader's general knowledge. What's written here is by no means the authoritative absolute answer, I am not the world's greatest authority on bass (not even close), or on anything else for that matter. I hope the information and opinions here are helpful to you, that's the point!

I welcome email with dissenting and additional viewpoints that help improve my personal awareness and the content pages. If you have a question that you think belongs here, please let me know.
