CLASSICAL MUSIC ON ELECTRIC BASS

What can be better than getting better while having fun and sounding good?

The themes composed by Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Vivaldi and the rest became known as "classical" for a reason: they stood a profound test of time and came to define what "musical" means to our ears. Playing these ageless lines on a modern electric bass will expand your horizons, advance your reading ability, build fingering skills, develop your ear, and make you a better bass player in every way that matters.
