This is an arrangement I composed for Dancing With A Stranger by Sam Smith & Normani. This song really struck me because it straddles the line between a dance track and a ballad. I think it has some of the best qualities of each. The arrangement is fairly approachable for beginners and intermediate players, though there are a few challenging parts.

Difficulty: 4.0/10 (Beginner/Intermediate)
Tabs will be posted shortly.

This is an arrangement I composed for Happier by Marshmello ft. Bastille. This just struck me as a really powerful song with a unique premise, and its melody and rhythm provided the foundation for an awesome bass solo! This is the first time using my newish Lakland 44-14 which is supposed to be a backup to my 4-94, but at this point I love both basses equally.

I had a good friend of mine Dennis Franco do the mixing and mastering for this recording. If you can't tell, it's is a BIG step up in audio quality from my past recordings, and I'm eternally grateful to Mr. Franco for working his studio magic. He's also a musician, he's on YouTube, and you should follow him here:

This is an arrangement I composed for Ecstacy by ATB. If you haven't guessed by now, I'm a fan of EDM music, and I really want to start covering some songs from my favorite DJs and Producers. This is my first step in that direction, and hopefully there will be many more!

This is an arrangement I composed for Sunflower by Post Malone & Swae Lee. I tend to play a lot of dark, complex, melancholic songs, but occasionally I like to play happy chill songs, and Sunflower is one of those songs :) It's actually more difficult to play than it may appear due to the combination of 16th note melody lines, awkward chord fingerings, and several different techniques played in quick succession. Tabs will be posted soon.

This is my cover of Marcelo Feldman's (aka The Bass Wizard) solo bass arrangement for I Can't Make You Love Me by Bonnie Raitt. I love this song, and I loved the arrangement Marcelo did for it, so I decided to learn it and play it here as my first ever solo bass cover. There are several solo bassists I admire, and I will probably cover more of their work in the future in addition to playing my own arrangements. I will not post tabs for this one as it's not my composition and not my decision to do so.

If you haven't seen The Bass Wizard yet then definitely check him out here:

Merry (early) Christmas! This is an arrangement I composed for Here Comes Santa Claus. This song was originally composed by Oakley Haldeman with lyrics written and performed by Gene Autry in 1947. It has since become a classic Christmas carol. There are a lot of great Christmas songs to choose from, but I picked this one because of it's fun jazzy sound and relatively limited number of covers done for it so far. Tabs will be posted shortly.

This is an arrangement I composed for The Sign by Ace of Base. This song was a favorite of mine back in the 90's, and after revisiting it I found it has a nice melody and chord progression that sounds great on solo bass! I ditched the extra cameras for this recording, so please excuse the limited editing. Tabs will be posted shortly.

This is an arrangement I composed for Don't Matter To Me by Drake ft. Michael Jackson. I though it was so cool how Drake retrofitted one of Michael's unreleased songs from the 80's and made it into something very modern yet classic sounding. It's got a great mix of new and old, and when I first heard it I just knew I had to play it on solo bass. Tabs will be posted shortly.

This is an arrangement I composed for Mercy Mercy Me by Marvin Gaye. This is a classic soul song, and it's got a cool swinging vocal line that was difficult to transcribe but sounds neat on solo bass. Tabs will be posted shortly.

This is a Guitar Pro tab playthrough of my solo bass arrangement for Lost In Japan by Shawn Mendes. This video was made with an open source Guitar Pro tab editor called TuxGuitar for Linux. I will probably release a few more tab playthroughs for popular solo arrangements in the future, but I don't think I'll be transcribing all of them this way because it takes so much time.

This is an arrangement I composed for Lost In Japan by Shawn Mendes. Mendes has been putting out a lot of great stuff lately, so I'm happy to pay him (additional) tribute with this cover. This was a difficult arrangement to play and record, and I had been sitting on it for far too long. I almost gave up on releasing it. Fortunately I got a clean(ish) take in the final hour. Tabs will be posted shortly.

This is an arrangement I composed for Follow You Down by Gin Blossoms. Gin Blossoms is one of my favorite 90's bands, and their songs have beautiful melodic vocal and guitar lines over melancholic harmonies and upbeat, snappy rhythms. Follow You Down is a prime example of this sound, and it translates well to solo bass. This is a difficult arrangement that took a lot of effort to compose and perfect, but I think it was worth putting in the time to get it right. Tabs will be posted shortly.

I've been kicking around the idea of transcribing my solo bass arrangements into a Guitar Pro style tab, so I set up a short demo of my Castle On The Hill arrangement using TuxGuitar. TuxGuitar is a free open source tab editor software that works similar to Guitar Pro. Guitar Pro tabs are unique and valuable because you can edit and play them back interactively in a way that combines audio and visual tracking. This can make it easier to learn a piece of music than just reading the text based version of the tabs or sheet music. I'm considering transcribing all of my solo arrangements this way, and I'd like to hear back from other bassists. Has anyone tried to learn one of my solos from the tabs and had difficulty? Would having a Guitar Pro tab help you learn better? Please like this video if so, and leave a comment with any feedback. Thanks!!

This is an arrangement I composed for Heart of Gold by Neil Young. I'm dedicating this video to my dad who's a huge Neil Young fan. He often complains about not knowing any of the songs I cover, so this is my first outreach to my him and the rest of the Baby Boomers. Also I switched up my backdrop and will continue to shoot more colorful video sets. Tabs will be posted shortly.

I've been feeling some 90's R&B lately, so I composed an arrangement for Always Be My Baby by Mariah Carey. It's one of my favorite songs from childhood and of all time I guess. I'll be covering more older songs from now on along with a lot of new stuff as well. That way all the old folks who aren't hip to what's happening can follow along :)

Tabs will be posted shortly.

This is an arrangement I composed for Havana by Camila Cabello. My camera went out of focus this time...well I'm a bass player, not a photographer! I also tried doing some mastering for the first time to enhance the sound, so hopefully it will sound better on different speakers/headphones.

Hi, I'm Anthony! I'm 28 and have been playing bass for the past 12 years or so, and my mission is to make more music available for solo bassists. I like to arrange popular songs for solo bass guitar, perform them here, and publish free tabs to help others learn. Please subscribe and keep an eye on my channel, and you'll see a lot of unique bass stuff that you won't find anywhere else. I release videos every few weeks depending on how busy life is.

This channel is mostly a mirror of my YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCek5F6yi2-FNxal_JmrWs4Q. I enjoy dissident politics, I support Alt Tech, and I would like to see BitChute grow to overtake YouTube some day. However I think its content will need to expand beyond politics in order to become mainstream. Since my own personal content is music related, I want to start using BitChute now to help it become a more well-rounded platform.
