Fingerstyle And Finger Funk

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by spikesstickies, Nov 1, 2004.


  1. Hey guys, haven't actually found a specific thread on both fingerstyle and finger funk, you know when victor pulls off his killer triplets and stuff. I'm not exactly certain on how you pull fingerstyle/funk off, i know it goes something like running your fingers down on your strings, both muted and not. Am i actually correct on this? And if i am could anyone give me a clearer idea on how it is actually done.
    Cheers, Spike :)
     
  2. Are you talking about double thumb slapping w/ multiple pops? Or just playing funk w/o slapping?
     
  3. No not exactly double thumping, more of playing around with your fingers, or am i wrong?
     
  4. Honestly I'm not sure what your talking about. I recomend buying the Live at Bass Day '98 victor wooten dvd. He gives alot of instruction after his performance as to how he does all that stuff.
