I've seen videos of many bass players playing classical stringed pieces on bass guitar (Bach Cello Suites are fairly popular), but about a year ago, my realization of a disturbing lack of classical-style literature written for bass guitar drove me to compose THIS. I've looked for composers who have written for solo bass guitar, and have found none. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zEm3M4vZv0
I completed my 'Sonatina for 6-String Bass; about 5 months ago, then performed it on my junior recital as a Music Composition major at Southeast Missouri State University. I wrote the piece while my D6 still had frets and practiced it extensively as such, so some of my left hand work is a little sloppy since I'm still playing it with fretted nuances. My eventual goal is to compose an entire collection of classical pieces for bass guitar. Please let me know what you think, thanks for watching!
