Sitruss: “I Left America” Solo Bass Cover

A bassist who goes by the screen name Sitruss has turned in one impressive cover of Michael Manring’s “I Left America”.

“This one has been in the works for a while,” the bassist said. “Playing solo gives you a lot less leeway for mistakes… it came out pretty good though considering it was the first try of the day! (Out of over a year of practice and skill building).”

Sitruss is performing this piece on an Ibanez SR505M with D’Adarrio Piccolo strings tuned F# C# G# A C#.
