I've been playing electric bass and practicing has never been a problem because I could simply use a headphone to practice whenever I wanted. Now I am going to learn double bass, and I see tons of problems ahead.
Acoustic instruments can be very loud and annoying to neighbors. I know I can put a mute on a double bass, but it isn't going to be any better because I rent a room from a large apartment where everyone is very quiet.
How do you find a place to practice? It's been a big problem for me to find a place to practice. I want answers from people who are not students and living in an apartment or sharing a room with others.
