Can anybody play this???
If so, give me the music.
Let your ears be your teacher.
May the force be with you...
The harmonics you need are all between the third and fifth frets on the A, D and G strings. Suss 'em out yourself and brag to your friends about how easy it was!
and then when you figure out the _rest_, you can show me
yes I can....no I won't.
sorry, but I learned it by ear, so can you...its really not that hard at all....nothing like portrait of tracy(in terms of complexity of the harmonics)
may the force be with you
this should be in recordings since its asking about a particular recording of him. Dont ya think?
btw, you didnt say please
actually cass, he's trying to learn how to play it, so off to General Instruction it goes.
don't get confused now!
ah very good point dance hall clasherson....i cant believe i over looked that .
Here's another clue. Some of the harmonics are not directly over a fret. Some are 1/3 of the way between 3 and 4, and some are 2/3 of the way between 3 and 4.
I figured it out by ear. If I can, then anyone can.
The coolest part of his version is the double harmanoics before the slap solo. That took me a while to get but it sure is fun to play. I haven't perfected the slap part though. Its more percussive in nature. Also, if you don't have "Victor Wooten at Bass Day 98" you need to get it. He actually plays it on the video but its not exactly like his transcription in BP. Good Luck..
