    Default Game (Final): Praise the double bass!

    Welcome to the Praise the double bass! game. We have nominated 45 compositions in which the double bass plays a major role, such as double bass concertos, works for double bass solo, or sonatas for double bass and piano (no transcription unless done or sanctioned by the composer). These were pitted against one another in three rounds, to end up with 16 works in the final. The list of nominations and the game plan including the preliminaries line-up and semi-finals can be found here.

    The rules:

    1) you may vote once during your calendar day.
    2) you have 10 points to distribute, but no composition may receive more than 4 points (deviating from the Bulldog games). Just copy/paste the latest board and add your votes.
    3) there is no halfway elimination of compositions with low scores.
    4) the final ends with the first composition to reach 80 points.
    5) at the end of the final, the top ten compositions will be listed (in case of a tie, I'll use a tiebreaker: the last time there was a difference).
    6) do not post negative remarks on any of these compositions, feel free to discuss them positively, and at any time you may post YouTube links to their works.

    If there is anything unclear, just ask.
