I'm looking for good resources for upright bass DIY education—especially regarding bowing basics and other physical/form questions.

Wife and I are the proud parents of a new upright 3/4, but neither of us has any real experience with bowing string instruments, or with dealing physically with the upright bass. And though it may well be my poor domain-specific vocabulary, I'm not finding good stuff online.
- absolute beginner bowing technique (French style bow);
- good guidance on dealing physically with the bass for playing;
- miscellaneous stupid-obvious things we don't know even though we should.
Web-based resources, a really killer book or two, or straight up advice: bring it on.
