Free Double Bass MIDI Files


Between 1996 and 1998 I created some simple piano MIDI files for double bass accompaniment and hosted them on my first website. Many of them lack a bit musicality (i.e. only few dynamics and hardly no ritardandi), but I think they are still ok for practising before you play with your real partner.

Here is the old collection with new working links. The files only contain the piano, not the double bass voice.
If someone is interested, I also have a few Finale documents from the original files (made with Fin 3.5, 3.7 and 97).

I recommend the free vanBasco Karaoke Player for optimal MIDI playback.
You can adjust the tempo, change the key and switch off individual MIDI channels.

License: The MIDI files may be used for private purposes only. It's not allowed to sell them or to make them available anywhere else.
