Following up on the hugely successful bass feature, "Bass-ically Bluegrass," the composer has written a gorgeous lyric solo for your young bass players! The perfect level to feature the young bass section or soloist, the easy solo bass part uses 1st through 3rd position with a momentary move into 4th position. This lush setting for soloist and string orchestra will be a big hit with your bass section and includes an optional bass part for section players. Written by a bass player for bass players and their teachers! (2:20)

    This is a great song for a really good bass section. The parts are great and, as a 14 year old viola player, the orchestral parts aren't very hard, but the bass soloists have some work
