Hi Matthew, 

The Solo Bass is the bass contained in Solo Strings I. If you are looking for more articulations, you should get the full library.

The Upright Bass is a picked jazz bass.

One of the things that separates the VSL full solo double-bass from the competition is its wealth of articulations. For solo playing, one of the key articulations for the double-bass is the natural harmonics, something required by many of the solo concertos written for the instrument. Also, for solo playing the transposition trick works reasonably well for mimicing the use of solo tuning A, E, B, F#, instead of the usual G, D, A, E.

Note that I was trained as a classical double-bassist.
