An easy arrangement of This Old Man for four double basses featuring “slap bass”. Performers have to pick up and put down the bow during the piece.

All parts stay firmly in 1st position and the rhythms are easy – the challenge is in keeping the tune moving between the parts and not dropping the bow!
