Rentamangusta
This is a part of my rock composition called Rentamangusta, I had a band with this name. This is only one part, well it doesn't sounds like when I play it, but is the best I can with this music-program.

Filter This Stuff Man, Or Woman
When studying a lesson take the time to figure out if the author is true. In other words when you see crap like this that people claim to play, slow it down and really look hard at what you are playing.

Pescetti - Sonata No 8 In C, 4th Mvment
Baroque piece by Pescetti, an Italian composer. This piece was composed for the harpsichord but I think it sounds nice on bass so enjoy! (This took me ages).

Bach Style - FAST
Even though Bach is Baroque, most folks just classify this style as "Classical." There are some interesting crossovers. Play as fast as is comfortable - it definitely lays well with practice. I use it as a warm-up. Enjoy.

Chateaublanc #2
Very fast and technical, this solo is best accomplished by attacking with 3 fingers rather 2 or a pick. Best played at about 160 or 170 depending on your right hand speed.

Badinerie
This is one bad ass piece of music for anyone who has ALOT of time to practise, and wants to make your friends worship you! A suit by Bach for flute arranged for two bassists, then slightly modified by me (same tones though) so it's playable on ONE bass!

16th Groove Elite
I created this bass line the first night I stumbled upon this site. And since this site generates TAB you can take this lesson as fast as you want. I love 16th notes, and it might show. But anyway, I hope you like it; contact me if you do.

D-Funk
This is an intro line I wrote 4 years ago for a song written by Beth Black. It's a Rocco/Jaco type of groove with 16ths. Learn it SLOW and then increase the tempo to 1/4=130. Have fun!!!

If You Like Hard Stuff
Something to twist your hands over for a while hammer-ons and slap/pop a must. It may not sound hard, but try playing it... The sound quality really lacks in demonstrating the correct play style. Be creative.
