Double Bass Solo from Mahler Symphony #1

In this lesson Lauren Pierce teaches one of the most famous bass solos from the orchestral repertoire. It’s taken from Mahler’s Symphony #1 at the start of the third movement and I’m sure you will recognise the tune! It’s a minor version of Frère Jacques and is a really haunting melody which all bassists should learn, regardless of what style of music you play.
