    Since I'm concentrating on fretless, I'm listening to and being inspired by Mark Egan's arrangement of 'What Child Is This.' I've heard it a zillion times but this year, I can actually work on playing it.

    Indeed!! That is a great song to learn on bass. Very groovy and it compliments that song perfectly.

    I am always working on some tool song at some point. But reading this thread is giving me some really good ones to go and try to master.

    Haha I know! Only problem with 'Better living...' is the part where the all the instruments do a full surround-sound stereo sweep thing and leave only the singing. Pretty hard to put that in haha
