I, just like 95 percent of all the bass players out there, am a huge victor wooten fan. I remember staying up late at night listening to bela fleck records or his first solo album and trying forevor to mimic that intensity and skill. Back then when i would run into another bassist, and they told me that they could play "me and my Bass guitar" or "you cant hold no groove", i genuinly thought that they were really good. But nowadays, with his new book out and so much word of mouth going around about out his style, people dont try to learn his style for themselves anymore, they just read an instruction booklet on how to do it and then they copy. Dont get me wrong, i think that book is by far one of the biggest things this year(even bigger than the third lord of the rings), but i just think that bieng able to play his stuff is starting to lose its appeal. What do yall think?
