    Hi, please help if you can;
    I am searching for some new music for our village band, we want some solos and features for our bass section,
    there are 6 of us at the moment,and it would be good to challenge us and make use of us, but
    I have been dissapointed to find that many solos start of melodiously and then end up being variations on a theme...
    Or are just unashamedly a study from the start,we are not a contesting band but we do lots of entertaining through the year and none of us basses particularly want to show off technically, we prefer a melody an audience will recognise or at least tap feet to.
    So as you can imagine this is proving tricky......
    Any suggestions or help will be gratefully recieved.:D

    Very melodious - toe-tapping and not a study - try my version of Tea For Two here
    only £10 to Print & Play.
    email if you would like more info or sample parts.

    Hi Ozzielover

    I've recently put a bass feature "Hector's Theme" on my website. If you follow the link you'll find it second on the list. Feel free to look at the score, listen to a version, and of course download if you feel it might be useful.

    Good luck with your search!

    Dare I suggest William Rimmer's "The Merry Men?" Used to knock that out as a section feature in my junior band days.

    Probably not in print any more though....
