    Are there any recommended pieces (obvioulsy wth DB in them..) recommended for group with varying level of capability, think more amateurs than professionals, please? I have been asked to research but would like to start with at least one 'easy' warm up type piece, to see where the level is actually at.

    Thanks for reading!
  2. What level amateurs? Jr High, HS, college ?

    Carl, we are talking seniors, people that may have played in their youth and have taken up the instrument again, or have taken up the instrument later in life...sorry to be vague, but I haven't met them myself, so I don't know if anyone here can help, just putting it out there, but thanks for taking the time though!
  4. I played a whacky Bottesini Quintet during my undergrad that featured myself, an awesome violinist, a crappy 2nd, a completely lost viola, and a good cellist. It kinda worked....
  5. You could also check out easy string quartet books and just use your bass. Done that many a times.
