Gary Willis Technique

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by r_simonini, Nov 17, 2002.


  1. Has anyone here tried the Gary Willis Technique of playing. How did you learn the technique? I have been to his website lessons a bit but they are not very complete. Does the technique require you to use his bass or a ramp like his or lower your action like he does? Thanks all for your input.

    I guess the best way is to watch his instructional video.

    I tried to learn it, but I was too impatient to totally rebuild my right-hand technique. Billy Sheehan's 3-finger technique (plus floating thumb) works good enough for me.
     
  3. where can you buy the video?
