Spooky was a 1967 one hit wonder from the Classics IV. Originally an instrumental and covered numerous times through the year, Spooky is a funky, slinky tune with a great melody and that totally hip #5 diminished chord. The most notable version might be that of the Atlanta Rhythm Section recorded in 1979. Spooky is a short arrangement, sounds cool and is one of the easier ones.
These Solo Bass arrangements are written specifically for the bass. Taking into account all the possibilities as well as the limitations of the instrument. Arrangements are played one octave higher than written.
