My first arrangement for two-handed tapping ala Stu Hamm!

Hey! I'm pretty excited because this is my first (sort of) creative effort in the vein of my biggest influence on bass, the awesome Stuart Hamm. I had a very simplistic version of Super Mario Bros 3's intro theme, but after listening carefully to the actual tune in the video game, I decided to create a more faithful (and elaborated) arrangement, which I want to dedicate to Stu.

Of course, this is a really short piece of music, but anyway it means a big achievement for me. Hopefully I will be able to work on a longer tune. Here's the transcription, just in case you are interested in giving it a try:

Stay tuned for the video! :) EDIT: After a long time, here it is:


  1. Thanks for all this hard work for us bass players out here. Good work, good stuff! Muchas Gracias, Amigo.

  2. Thank you, James! BTW, I've just noticed that I forgot to put the video of this tune in this blog entry. I'm going to add it right now.
