    +1 I love his approach and philosophy towards bass playing, and music in general. However, I do not care for his tone or his tecniques.

    He's got some fascinating techniques, and comes across as being a genuinely nice guy, but honestly, a lot of the music I've heard from him doesn't really do much for me.

    See, I don't even agree with this. The techniques I don't like, are his thumb "picking" shown at the beginning of Jasons video, and his thumb sweeping technique.

    Nothing "fascinating" about either one, and sweeping on bass gives a very 'mute' sound, which makes it sound sloppy. So I don't find it at all impressive.

    I still like a lot of his work, and he's very impressive otherwise.

    The main thing that bothers me is that when it's time to take a solo, he often just uses his double-thumb thing to play five minutes worth of non-stop muted sixteenth notes, and it gets really really tedious after a while (then again, this annoys me about a lot of slap-style playing). I definitely think the thumb thing could be cool if it was used a bit more musically though. I'd love to hear someone use the technique over chord changes.

    Victor Wooten is fantastic and always has been one of my favs. I had one of his solo albums too and I need to get it again. Cool vids! :yesway:
