    There are a few books of arrangements for bass guitar of classical pieces. But first, How can I get you to read regular notation? If you get good at it the world of music will truly open up for you.
    Okay, speech over. There are two nice books of pieces by J.S. Bach: "J.S. Bach for Electric Bass," by Josquin des Pres. Its published by Mel Bay Publications and comes with a reference CD.
    There is also a "J.S.Bach for electric Bass," published by Hal Leonard. This one has three duets included in the pieces.
    These books have both standard notation and tablature.
    Go to it! Once you learn these pieces you will still want to play them because they are all great music.
     
  5. Is there a tab for that Stu Hamm version of moonlight sonanta?
