Giovanni Scarabel: Eugene’s Trick Bag (On Bass)

Giovanni Scarabel shared this video on our Facebook Group, and it got a lot of attention.

“Those of you guys who see my posts already know that I like to play guitar parts on bass… Well, this time I tried a really hard one,” Giovanni shared.

The piece is Steve Vai’s “Eugene’s Trick Bag”, from the movie Crossroads. The piece is based on Paganini’s “Caprice No. 5”, and quite the feat on a 4-string bass!

Well done, Giovanni!
