    So i just learned to play the peanuts theme by stu hamm on bass and i found out that it wasn't as hard to play 2lines in one, even though i kinda gave up the first time i tried it.

    Anyway, i would like to get some suggestions on tapping songs, doesn't matter what kind of tapping but i would prefer something like the peanuts.
    And yeah, one day i hope i'll be able to play one of bach's inventions :bassist:

    Well, a good song to learn would be Beethoven's 'Moonlight Sonata'. The first double tapping song I learned. Give it a listen. :)

  3. Star Trek by Stu Hamm was my first.
     
  4. Anyone have a link to some videos of the songs mentioned?

    take a jazz standard, or in fact any tune, with a groovy bassline and a melody and then arange it yourself.

    I've got a lovely little two handed tapping arrangement of blue bossa - bassline and chords. My band were so impressed that they make me play a few chorus's by myself before we crack fully into the tune! :bassist:
