    ok, I'm sure there have been a million posts about the double thumb technique but i just can't seem to get it. Whenever i go up and down i always seem to hit other strings and they start ringing. how did you guys learn how to do this?

    i kinda can do it... not to the extent that wooten can but i had to have the local guitar shop set my action "just right." because i found if it was too low, the string would hit too hard and the tone would be weak. and if it was too high, well, it's just plain hurts

    not sure if you've watched this but it may help

    By practicing, and for hours on end.
