Maurizio Mariani: Solo Bass Arrangement of Elliott Smith’s “Everything Means Nothing To Me”

“Everything Means Nothing to Me” is one of the most haunting and equally infectious tracks from the late singer/songwriter Elliott Smith’s album Figure 8. It’s one of those songs that just sticks with you for a while after you hear it, due in part to a repeated theme.

Check out this solo bass version that Maurizio Mariani worked up. He crafts the arrangement to include the bass line and vocal melody to faithfully recreate that same feeling. Bravo!
