The purpose of this project report was to study the pedagogical literature for both classical and jazz double bass, and demonstrate the need for a more comprehensive method for jazz double bass. The research predominantly focused on a few essential fingering techniques developed by jazz bassists that are underrepresented in the available literature. These techniques are explained in order of difficulty, and used to analyze the solo improvisations of Paul Chambers, Oscar Pettiford, and Scott LaFaro. The approach to thumb position described in the paper is applied to the performance of a Chet Baker solo at pitch. ii
