I'm looking for solo pieces for electric bass. What I mean by "musical" is that it doesn't necessarily have to be technical.
To give an idea of what I'm talking about
: I'm currently working on Back Doors Catcote Rag
(I have stumbled into this transcription
). In the past I've also done Level 42s Dune Tune (link for the lazy
). I'm also a bit inspired by this album
, which seems to be really unknown. Here's another vocals & bass duet
with a bass player which you talkbassers probably know.
What would you recommend learning? Give me anything with lots of melodies and harmonies (maybe like Portrait of Tracy, or Michael Manrings Selene but actually playable on a regular 4-string
) more technical (Stu Hamms Country Music or just anything Stu Hamm comes to mind) or actual song (eg the intro to You've Ruined Me
). I think I've given enough examples, hit me with what you've got!
