    Hey, i was just wondering if anyone knew of any (kind of easy) eastern (Indian and the like) style etuedes and easier pieces. I'm a huge fan of eastern music and bass players (liek Renaud Garcia-Fons who are eastern influenced) If anyone knows any pieces and where to get them, it would be quite useful

    Thanks

    Holy Crap!
    Ive been dreaming of that instrument for years! I cant believe someone has done it. It looks like the sympathetic strings are removable entirely. Genius!
