    I am with you... but the poster did not say that... He said Vic sounded like poo.

    I know that is not true. I sound like poo and Vic doesn't sound like me so the poster is incorrect if only on a factual basis.:D

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    My .02:

    I respect Wooten for his ability to groove at least as much for his "pyrotechnics".

    The man is so incredibly sound in so may areas that he simply blows my mind.

    If Victor played shred metal Suckbird would probably be all over his stuff. :p

    Personally, I think Victor's amazing, but I much prefer is playing with the Flecktones. I'd also like to argue that his fingerstyle playing is indeed quite "special" in my opinion.

    If you like Dennis would be hard not to like Larry Bright.

    10 years ago or so, there was a supposed 'project' comprised of Bright, Wooten, Frank Gambale, & Tom Coster. They did a clinic/concert down was there was supposed to a band, a cd, etc. Bright put out a cd called Double Standards w/ Gambale(& Gary Grainger)...I guess that's about as close as they got(?).

    Every time I see Wooten on video he motivates me to barricade myself in my room and slap... for hours on end.:)

  15. +1 - If nothing else Vic is one of the grooviest bass cats alive - he also so much more besides - but check out jam 4 - it's about as funky as funk gets - and Larry Bright is killing, just killing - very inspiring groovy sh!t...

    More love to y'all

    Noone's gonna flame you. However, I give you a week to learn me and my bass guitar and record yourself for us to hear your amazing technique (seeing as vic's is "nothing special at all") I'd sure like to hear you play his songs as fast and as precise as he does. Sure, his style is odd, I dont like his music, but his technique is amazing, and I'm amazed that you as a bassist dont see what the big deal is...

    Why? I practice quite a alot but i dont spend a single second on slapping...

    did i say what he plays is easy? I said i dont like it, and i dont see any reason to practice countless of hours on something i dont even like...

    i could probably spend years on slapping without being able to play what victor can but to me it doesn't matter how difficult something is if it doesn't even sound good...
