Some bass blayers play classical guitar as a second instrument , because there is a lot of Bass movement , in classical guitar .

Yngwie Malmsteen's Far beyond the sun " has a really awsome bass line .

does anyone have any interest in classical inspired bass lines?

Really . That's good .

Jeff Berlin once recorded a song called "Bach" which was a tribute to bach . It's a little to technical for my taste , though .
Micheal Shenkner Group, has some great Bass work out there.

I think classical music is a great way to expand your skills as a bass player.

When auditioning Upright Bassists for our band I met alot of guys with extensive Jazz background yet Very very few of them could play a Tumbao Rhythm for more than a few bars without going back to something more basic. I think that learning and practicing a good Tumbao could help any Bass player with his groove. The Groove can be more important that the notes. Check out this Tumbao Groove (http://LosBoleros.net/music/TVSpot.MP3)

I've got a book somewhere of J.S Bach pieces specifically for bass, it's basically all arpeggio pieces which were used as right hand piano training pieces.Some really nice sounding stuff, sounds a lot more complicated than it is!! Amaze your freinds and astound enemies at a single solo piece!!

I'll dig it out and post the I.S.B.N No or maybe even tab one of the pieces out if anyone's interested?

hey Los Boleros, my experience with a lot of jazz-rhythm sections is that they have trouble playing simple repeating patterns without constantly playing variations. At the conservatory I study at I have seen great jazz bassists and drummers play awful, awful pop music because of this (amongst other things like a different time feel).

I am
It'll take a while to tab, but I am determined to do it!!!!!!
It will be Prelude #1 in C major. I think I'll have to tab it in Word, then add it as an attatchment. As you may have guessed I'm not that 'au fait' when it comes to these computer type thingy's!!!!!!:p :p

if you're interested in slap bass along with classical peices then i suggest "Classical Thump" by Victor Wooten. A truly incredibly intriguing peice. I have just recently learned it by looking in Victor Wooten's tab book. I can post a site to find it if anyone is interested.
