  1. Dear Michael Manring.

    I was wondering if I could get a tab for your "Music for armchair funambulist" song I got from the STASH. I don't care what I have to do to get it! It is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard from you. Kudo's for writting it! You are the best! :bassist:

    Thanks so much, B8ssMan89! I'm sorry to say I haven't gotten around to transcribing “Music for Armchair Funambulists” but the tuning it starts with -- in case you want to give it a try yourself -- is Bb-F-Bb-D, low to high, with the low string tuned a tritone above standard low E. I definitely don’t recommend trying this tuning with standard gauge strings! I use D’Addario XL280 Piccolo bass strings for it.
