    To be honest he is pretty well known in the latin community bass world, here he is when he was 11 years old.

    Yes he's ! But I think he must be well known in the world ! He's not copying anybody's licks ! He's playing with his heart !

    Pipoquinha is good. He's in his late teens now I think. His earlier stuff though is my fave of his.

    He's 16 now (I'm Friends on FB with him). He's played a lot with some mutual friends - Sergio Groove and Jim/Grant Stinnett. He's incredible!! His dad's a musician. I'm hoping he will come up here for NH Bass Fest sometime....lots of players from Brazil do each year.

    What exactly is there to be learned from him? In every video of him I've ever seen he's either playing The Chicken or regurgitating licks that someone has shown him. I've not seen any real musical innovation from him so far. What am I supposed to be seeing?

    Don't worry about it - I heard that bass virtuosity is out for 2013 and simply holding it down is back in. :p

    And by the way, he's just 14 (That's the reason I posted this thread) , maybe in his 17s or 18s he might interest you more ! LOL !
