Dark and fascinating!  Length: Approx. 3:30.

This three-part solo bass arrangement of an American classic offers an unusual and captivating selection for your next recital. First, an evocative introduction sets the mood. Next, audiences will recognize and enjoy how this famous melody is self-accompanied so that it sounds like two parts. The dramatic middle section emulates a jazz solo with builds, stops, and pauses. The last section modulates the melody to a new key enabling additional open-string extended techniques.

Technical learning opportunities include:
- High notes
- Ghost notes
- Hammer on pizz. slurs
- Glissandi
- Pinched and raked double stops
- Harmonics
