Brad Russell: Van Halen’s Spanish Fly on Bass

Brad Russell loves taking tunes written for guitar and turning them into solo bass pieces.

He shared his latest effort with us, tackling Van Halen’s “Spanish Fly.”

“I feel when a piece of music like Bach or Miles Davis is played it can be played on ANY instrument and sound good that’s a true sign of a great piece,” he shared. “‘Spanish Fly’ by Eddie Van Halen is just that.”
