All the music available to buy anywhere, this music
by far, is the very best deal for the money. You
get so much: Original music and bass repertoire.
The music in this book varies in difficulty and with
just a little curiosity will push players to try the
harder stuff because the music is right there (by the
flip of a page) and it is so fun to try, if even by
segments. A bass buffet!
Solos for the Double Bass
Player (with CD)
Same exact book as above, but this one comes enclosed
with an accompanimental piano CD to play along with!
Francis Rabbath: Solos for the Double Bassist
(this is just solo bass without any piano.) A
great representative of Rabath's music and culture.
