Jesus this guy blows my mind
Great player. Not a fan of some of his techniques though..
I his technique and musical creativity.
I love this one!
+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.
ahah.. i see an identical video of him explain the same thing!
i love this man!
EDIT: see at THISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!
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.
amazing what you can do with just 4 strings!! so much for all these smart-arses with their 10-string monsters
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!
