Victor Wooten's Guitar Battle

Anyone who plays bass guitar (like myself) will know that Victor Wooten is probably the best bass player in the world. I was just having a look on youtube and came across this video of him having a guitar battle with his brother Regi.

The talent on these guys is f*cking immense, check it out->

I've seen him in concert (Flecktones) and he is simply incredible and I still find it hard to wrap my brain around his immense virtousity. He had a 10-minute bass solo that was just insane. Started with a nice groove, then added harmonic loops on top of that, then a melody, and then a little percussion (all on just his bass), then he started detuning his bass guitar as he played and played it like a drum kit, and after a while slowly started retuning it (at this point the audience is trying to figure out what he's doing it) and then after a while he just comes right back around to playing the starting groove with harmony and melody on top. One of those things that's hard to explain, but I have to tell you when he broke out of retuning and into playing the original groove again, everyone was struggling to pick their jaw up off the floor. People were turning to each other, whether they knew that person or not, and trying to check if they actually saw what they just saw.


The video clip is cool, and shows just a little bit of the immense technical prowess Vic has. But one thing the clip doesn't show is that he is far more than just a technical wizard - he also is an incredible musician who can truly play in any style and knows just what to play to suit the music.

Enough fanboy gushing.

Vic is like God, only with a bass guitar. Thanks for the clip. Just watching it makes my finger tips hurt. I want Victor Wooten's calluses.

This is pretty amazing too:

This is one of my favorite solos. From a Flecktones dvd (all of which is quite awesome).

Amazing Grace
