Nathan Navarro: One Handed Bass Solo

Nathan Navarro had a dream that he lost one of his arms, which inspired him to write this solo bass piece. The ethereal piece is a little dream-like itself and features some real right hand dexterity to execute the complicated tapping.

  1. Nathan, that was really impressive. Just listening to this was cool enough, but then realizing you’re pulling it off with one hand… excellent. I recently came up with something similar but it really seems much less… lesser so to speak. :) But all kidding aside, very cool!

  2. Just one word: AMAZING.

  3. This is inspiring!
    There is a one-handed Chapman Stick player, you can check his posts if you search on the stickist dot com forums.

  7. Very nice indeed! A challenge (maybe) for you…. Have you thought about doing this with only the left hand?
