  3. Classical Thump huh? HA HA HA HA I pitty the fool that sits at home and tries to learn that song. I spent like 6 months trying to learn that song and did'nt even get close. I finally had to throw in the towle before I ended up in the nut house. But hey if you do want to try to learn it ( I hope you can do hammer ons in your sleep;) ) good luck to ya. HA HA HA HA silly fool you have no idea what your getting into.

    Oh yeah if you really want to learn it you need the transcriptions the tabs on this page are not even close;)

    Well, if you were a God of Bass, you could probably learn it without tabs.

  6. Wow, thats to funny. Do you think Victor flipped when people e-mailed him and asked for TABS to classical thump? But You gotta give victor credit as much as he must of hated doing it he did it for his fans. Some how I get the feeling Mr. Berlin wouldn't be so generous;)
     
  7. im still learning how to read music and my theory hence the tab, my reading is not that good yet!
     
  8. classical thump is not that hard. you just have to work on your double thumbing and you can do it in your sleep. there are no hard rythyms, it's pretty straight forward. I'm 16 and I've played it at concerts, it only took me a couple weeks to get it down, so it shouldn't be too hard for you guys. it sound WAY harder than it is.

    Classical thump isn't an extremely hard piece. the double slapping is a bit difficult.. I heard someone play the opening part of it (not the double slapping part) and I was like.. I can do that... so I did... haven't looked at the tab yet.. maybe I should... i'm about half way through it

    classical thump? not hard...ok....i can play the first 3 sections(same patterns added in open strings and double thumb) and i can play the next few sections. get his book that he plays with steve bailey "bass extreems" its got fun tunes in there. Me and My bass Guitar is not that hard. the intro is alot of fun to play. i usually warm up my thumb with that song. now You cant Hold No Groove if you aint got no pocket.....that is a fun song to play. the opening chord followed by a easy little tap on the high G...mmm good. peace

    Ok guys, time to take this thread in a different direction and put your music where your mouth is... Let's hear some of your "best" Wooten impersonations!

    Peace,

    - Frank.

    I would love to hear you do some of Vic's stuff that's "not that hard." More importantly, could you write it, on your own?

    Jazzbo, you realize that WORLDWIDEPANTS was the one who issued the statement "I'm 16 and I've played it at concerts..." and not me, right?

    The day I can play like Wooten... well, let's just say I'm not quite ready to quit my day job...

    Peace,

  14. classical thump sounds way harder than it really is. As victor says- if you just think of something as easy, then it is. it's just 8th notes, 16th notes, 32 notes (so with no odd breaks it would be very writeable). 32nd notes sound impossible but with hammer ons and double thumbing it's relatively effortless. my dad sold his roland vs880 so I have no way to record it. But if any of you are in denver I would love to have you over and jam. I don't want to come across as a macho bass jerk putting things down all the time and acting like I'm way better than everyone. And I am in no way saying that I can do it as well as Victor, he does it way cleaner. But if anyone is in colorado, I'm up for a jam.

    The way I quoted your thread was ambiguous. Oops, sorry about that. :D I was quoting your thread as a "right-on!" "I totally agree!" and let me add my two cents worth.

    Sorry for the confusion! :D
