My favorite Christmas song – Silent Night – for solo bass

Learn it now!

Enjoy my solo bass rendition of my favorite Christmas song which also happens to have been written by a fellow Austrian.

I have two versions for you – an easier one and a tougher one. First, here is the tougher one:

Want to learn how to play it?

Scared of the six string? No sweat, I show it to you on the four string 🙂

If you are afraid to get your fingers in a pretzel in the above version,  learn an easy version!

Easy Version Tutorial starts at 18:02!

Here are the PDFs:

Easy Version: Just Melody and Bass: Silent Night Ariane Cap Solo Bass EZ Version

Full Version: Silent Night Full Version


And if you liked this and are tackling it – I’d love it if you sent me a video or audio recording of yourself playing it! You can also post it right here into the comments, too!

I wish for your Holidays to be filled with music, family and love!

Merry Christmas!

    Ari, I love this and can’t wait to learn to play it myself (although I suspect the simpler version may be more my speeed). Do you have any idea when it’s going live on TrueFire? I’m a bit worried I may have missed it already.
