That guy can certainly groove.
guitarists just love stealing our glory
I've seen this before. Very groovy and cool. But he is a flamenco guitarist. Not a bassist. Althought I do not doubt he could tear it up on a bass.
I've also heard that flamenco guitarists can play upwards of a hundred notes a second. Take that Yngwie
Makes me want to buy an acoustic guitar....
Note to self: buy acoustic guitar, apply bass slapping and tapping skills. Destroy. Destroy.
A hundred notes a second? No, very doubtful. Think about it!
Don't know.... I've heard Flamenco players who were even faster and more accurate than that clip. Classical guitarists can get strangely speedy, too. Must have something to do with the early training...
If you think he's awesome, pickup the DVD of Victor Wooten Live at Bassday 1998 and go to the piece where he invites his older brother Reggie on stage, he does all the things that Victor does on an electric fender guitar. And then the two of them begin to exgange solos....
And if you think that regi's awesome, you haven't heard his one of his students Robert Provine, this kid was playing so fast I couldn't track his hands!
Very cool. Sonically it reminded me very much of some of Michael Hedges' stuff.
I've got the video, and call me a blasphemer, but I dig this guy's style a bit more. The acoustic guitar (instead of Strat) probably has alot to do with it. More "meat."
You know, I've always wondered if people slap and pop on guitars...now I know!
Hrm. Its not that fast, really.
I just love Regi's tapped intro to 'Vulcan Worlds'. His sound during the "thump off" on that DVD is pretty atrocious. I have an mp3 of a thump-off (bootleg?) - they play the same phrases but much more cleanly and with a better tone.
I'd love to hear more from Regi Wooten.
He used to play in a local Top 40 band around here(circa mid '80s) called The Journal...at that time, Regi reminded me of Hiram Bullock. It's been awhile since I've heard him.
Rudi Wooten on sax(es)...i.e. two at a time, is just amazing(Bird meets 'Trane?).
I was re-reading an old Guitar Player that had the cover story of "Speed-How To Get It, How To use It"...the author of the article came up with "one can only get but so fast".
He proved this by entering a phrase of 4 notes in a sequencer; then he increased the speed & increased the speed & increased the speed, etc...
Eventually, the phrase became a gliss. The human ear could no longer discern each individual note.
His estimate for the "gliss" = 1,300 notes per minute; his belief is that humans can only get as fast as 1,000 notes per minute.
well, just because the ear cant tell the difference doesnt mean the hand cant surpass the ear's capabilities
