"The Old Country" by Nat Adderley, easy solo bass rendition.

  1. An idea for those who want to break with the supporting/rhythm section role of the bass guitar (albeit occasionally) to play alone, or play chordal and melodic songs This is quite easy to learn (particular on a 5 string)

    "The Old Country" by Nat Adderley and Curtis Lewis. Very easy solo bass rendition. Besides the simple and low key arrangement, it is made even easier using a custom made instrument specifically designed for this type of chord-melody playing. Bass by Andrew drake.

    Just the 16 bar melody/theme played twice, no solo, no development. More like a chord-melody exercise really.
    Performed by Daniel Diaz in Paris, December 6th 2016.
