I'm new to the forums here and I'm rather new to the bass as well. I've been playing for six months now and I was wanting to find some interesting melodic type stuff to play on the bass. Something sorta calm but lively, if that makes sense.
Well I think I'm looking more along the lines of solo work type stuff. Like Stu Hamm, just not as complex lol. I have a long way to go before I can play most of his stuff.
You could try learning Portraits of Tracy by Jaco Pastorius. Itll be kind of hard, but more feasible then Stu Hamm
