Victor Wooten, My Favorite!

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by kaggeman, May 9, 2006.

  1. Hello, I've studied Vic for a long time now.
    He's really the best of the best!
  2. What do you think of him?
  3. I think he is awesome.

    Even if you don't like him, you have to admit he's done a lot for the bass comunity:bassist: (camps, solo bass contest, clinics, etc...)

    I wonder what Victor is up to next
  4. actually I said I love him but anyway:p I'm going to visit Bass nature Camp soon, maby next year.
    He's the most productive bass player I've ever seen.
    He always comes up with new Ideas on how to play studidly hard things:p And the best thing about him is the way he GROOVE! not the way he plays fast. He has the butt beat:p

    a beat that makes your butt move???


  7. it was more of a general statement, not directed towards you or anything.:)

    sometimes with internet forums it can be hard to type how i talk.
  8. Very Cool!

    What were you working on with Vic? Did you spend time on groove, soloing or ?

    Please share some details.

  9. I know his technique now. ;) It's really cool to use. I think I have everything that you must have with him.
    I'm far from becoming Victor Wooten the Second but I'm on a good way I think. A frase that Wooten said, I think you all should listen and think about this: Don't try to play and understand my flashy stuff befour you groove. (so wise!) Even if you can play Clasical Thumb or a show of hands. It's not just fast and difficult, it's much feeling in it to. And thats why he's the best of all. He put every groove felling in every song. Put Love in the music man. (More Love) ;)

    If you want to learn.try to download: Victor Wooten, lesson on technique (not just his technique, learn how to think music) and by his own Subscribed newly realesed book.
  10. yeah!;)

    I appreciate the hell out of him, but like his non-technical stuff more than the fireworks display that his slap solos turn into.
    I really like his fretless playing and support playing behind the Flecktones and when I saw him with the Mike Stern Quartet.

    Who is this Victor Wooten that you speak of ?
  15. You doesn't know about Vic? Man you have to check him out:p
    Yes ofcourse he plays fast, but don't listen to just the fast things.
    Try to figure out his groove. THATs the hard part, the fast things can be learnt. But to fell the groove is hasrder than playing fast.
  16. I dont like his music per se, but i respect the **** out of him and think he's a great player with a down to earth positive attitude.
  17. great attitude man=) everybody doen't like it. I respect that also.
  18. If anybody who read this thread want to know anything about Vic you should ask. Also if anybody of you have msn messenger and like to share some of vic's fretless things with me you should contact me.=) I want to listen to his other side also, I havn't heard anything fretless from him. Just groove, speed and love.
