    I saw Victor at a couple of shows, and I listened to his albums relentlessly, and I can still never seem to get his technique down tap. i even went to his site, and lessons, but it seems very difficult to understand (exp. Classical Thump: passed the eighth notes; the first song on disc two live in America) so i'm sure someone besides Wooten has this technique down, can I get some advise​

    i dunno. i'm a terrible slapper myself.
    i've sen him twice and the amazing thing is how little his hand actually moves. (i'm sure lots of other greats have the same tecnique)
    me? i always look as though i'm trying to beat a mackerel to death on my fingerboard. :p
