“Under the Bridge” is a classic tune made famous by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. But you’ve never heard it exactly this way before – a big YouTube hit that is a solo bass arrangement. It will work for auditions and recitals or when you just want to wow your audience. In the lesson series featured in this particular course, you’ll learn how to put the song together for solo bass, from intro to verse to chorus to bridge, from finger patterns to tabs and notation, complete with shortcuts and detailed explanations that will have you laying down a great solo version of this classic almost painlessly (well, you might have to practice a little).
