    This solo ended up being a lot tougher than I thought it would be...not that I thought it would be easy...I still don't have it down, but I recorded what I have today to see how it sounded and figured I'd share with you guys.

    By the way, this is Wooten's first solo on the song Weedwacker, from the album The Hidden Land.

    Thanks man. It's a Warwick Thumb BO through the DI on my WT-550 straight to the recording interface.

    very nice. +1 on the tone
     
  5. Nice work. Are you soloing the bridge pickup on a jazz type bass for that?

    No, but the Thumb (a Warwick model) has both pickups at an angle favoring the bridge, and they're also both much closer to the bridge than a typical Jazz bass. On this recording I had it about 45-55 in favor of the bridge pickup.


    Thanks again dudes.

    I would have liked to have heard a click or the original track. Or anything other than some solo bass. I don't care how difficult, awesome, or moving the original solo is to you, playing it alone without any accompaniment does absolutely nothing for me. Context is important. Granted, I can happily listen to Bach solo cello suites without complaining but a prog. rock bass solo without any point of reference gives me little to cling too.
