  11. Im learning "Suite 1" by Bach.
    its a good tempo song that is great for technique. When my teacher first showed me it i thought, BACH!!! WHAT!! but after playing it a bit it grew on me. Is actually a cello piece but it sounds great on bass too. its also a common piece played but year 12 student that do solo (bass) in australia, check it out man.
