I borrowed a bass tape from a bud and it had a short excerpt from a few bass players from their own bass video that they put out. And when it came to Alan Woody I was floored ! he plays funk with a pick and pops with his pinkey while muting with his palm,NEVER SEEN THAT BEFORE ! I am a well rounded musician I like to think but what this guy did was as innovated as some of the more popular players being worshiped on a daily basis. I never read or see much about him,especially since he died 3 years ago,his style was cool and funky and when he talked he sounded like a hick but played like a seasoned jazz great(no offense ment ,I dont know how else to describe him). CHECK HIM OUT YOU'LL BE GLAD YOPU DID.
