Wordless/ful Wednesday

What Musical Instrument Am I?



Answer to last Wordless/ful Wednesday: Double Bass
The double bass is one of my all time favorite instruments because it is so much fun to play with! The double bass (also known as the contrabass or standup bass) was made in the 15th century and is the largest string instrument made. The double bass plays jazz and classical music and is made out of many types of wood. To play the double bass a player can pluck the strings or move a bow across the strings. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_bass

Below is an example of what a double bass sounds like playing jazz music:
