Next to the Bassoons.
on a chair
There is the double bass, also known as the string bass and upright bass (to distinguish it from a bass guitar). It is the lowest string instrument. The other instrument that commonly plays bass, or low, notes is the cello. It is somewhat higher in pitch than the bass but still is big enough that it has to sit on the floor, supported by an end pin.
A Bass Player
Sit on the toilet and yell. LOTS of bass
Use a lot more air, make sure your pushing with your stomach. Sit up in your chair, straight back & always be in tune. Be heard, but don't be too loud. Always match the bassons, baritones & tuba's.
exactly the way you would play it standing...just sit upright
from the audience, violas sit to the right of the stage, between the 2nd violins and the cello/bass sections.
the double bass is over 6 foot tall. Because of this, you have to sit on a stool (a tall chair) to play it!!!!
To the far right of the conductor, behind the cellos.
