Mozart's Rondo Alla Turca on a Bass Guitar

While I continue to hope that I will learn the guitar some day, I also continue to go overboard in my searches for information on bass guitars. (Yes, this turned out to be another one of my Google/Wiki sessions.)
I found a rendition of Mozart's lively Rondo Alla Turca by David Hull. This guy just works the bass like a pro. I think he is a pro...there is another video — sporting longer hair and fuzz — giving instructions on how he plays the final part of Piano Sonata No. 11.

Now, this find is not new but I just want to give credit to this incredibly talented guy. So what if the video is a year old. Mozart's number was composed and played some time in the 18th Century and it's still enthralls.

So without much ado...presenting...on the bass guitar...playing Mozart's Rondo Alla Turca...young...David Hull!! *Applause*

I did not know either. But after listening to this, I figured it is possible but very difficult...from the way he moves his fingers across the frets.

Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. :)
