Double Bass – Sheet Music, Books & Scores

“How many double bass players does it take to screw in a lightbulb? It always seems to alternate between one and five!”

It may be true that the double bass has a lot of perfect cadences to play, but there is an awful lot more to the biggest member of the modern string family than meets the eye. Browse our sheet music and scores, take a look at Rock Double Bass, Double Bass Pop Music or Jazz for Double Bass, and whether you prefer arco or pizzicato, get that Double Bass Walking with Stretta today!

First seen in the middle of the 16th century, as a larger version of the bass viola, it wasn’t until the 18th century, once it had taken the shape we recognise today, that the double bass started being integrated into the modern-day orchestra. Nowadays, the double bass features as a solo instrument, in chamber music, and is also prominent in the worlds of jazz and pop.
