I was wondering who was the first person to spin a double bass during a performance, and who popularized it?

  • I don't know, but this is pretty earty- youtube.com/watch?v=V_kNz6aaC70 – Scott Wallace Nov 10 '18 at 14:45

    @Brahadeesh - so it is. Here's another that works: youtube.com/watch?v=1mJD3KiYvwA – Scott Wallace Apr 1 '19 at 13:52
  • @ScottWallace Thanks for the new link! I don't see the bassist spin the double bass, though? – Brahadeesh Apr 1 '19 at 14:05

    @Brahadeesh - wow, that's very cool, thanks. Who knows when it started? A good friend of mine, a bassist who's done a lot of funny stuff, is coming over day after tomorrow- I'll ask him if he knows anything about it. Greetings from springy Vienna- let me know if you're ever out this way, and lunch is on me. – Scott Wallace Apr 22 '19 at 14:00
