    Cool man the company software doesn't block your tune since it's not an MP3 sounds great!
  3. That's incredible. Great composition. I'd like to hear the rest of it.

    Great performance, man, and you sound great.

    OK, so, I got a question - if memory serves me right the last movement has those _sixth_ double-stops in it ... how are you supposed to play those?

    One of my theory profs started his lecture on Varese by reading an infamous article from Stereo Review to the class, witholding the author's name until the end - Frank Zappa. It's out there on the WWW and is a pretty funny read if y'all don't know it.
  5. hi... cool thanks for the zappa info... here is the link http://csunix1.lvc.edu/~snyder/em/zappa.html . dont remember the exact notes, but the piece works best on a 5 string bass (requires a low b). I think thats the only way to do it unless you tune down an extension to a low b, or replace the e str with a b string on a normal 4 str. bass. I did the "replace the e string version".
