    Very nice cross-section, and I really liked the classical end of things. In particular, I loved the Adagio by Tomaso Albinoni. Upon further research, it appears that Albinoni's Adagio was found in rudimentary form shortly after WWII. Apparently, the manuscript was found in a library in Dresden and consisted of a bass line and a violin part, but nothing else. The Italian musicologist Remo Giazotto wrote the bulk of the composition (Penguin's Rough Guide to Classical Music on CD, 1994). Still, it's a lovely piece and it strongly rivals Barber's Adagio for me.

    Give em a gumball. We hit the jack pot. Every bass player should see this video.

    They embraced my method of hanging on the "one". Makes me feel accepted.

    They also embraced my method of walking or taking the song on a journey. Warm fuzzy's.

    Also the atmosphere rumbles and the bouncing or chaotic movements. The bass has endless opportunity's for making music. And people ask me why I pick bass??? Watch this flick, it explains it.

    Your methods, eh? ;)

    Well I guess if you use them, they are. Hey, why not?
