Victor’s first Instruction book in over 20 years!
Part 1 of this book deals with many of Victor’s concepts and approaches and outlines his ten essential elements of music including such important and under-emphasized areas as emotion and feel, dynamics, tone, phrasing, leaving space, and listening.
In Part 2, the lessons use music notation, tablature, and video footage to cover such key topics as warming up and hand-strengthening, tone, harmonics, thumb technique, tapping, looping, and soloing. This section is a more “how to” approach with hands-on demonstrations. Throughout, Victor underscores this vital material with a “groove first” ethic, as well an accent on being musical and creative—three mandatory ingredients to becoming a highly-sought-after professional bassist. All of which makes Victor Wooten Bass Workshop a must-have tool for bass players at all levels.
Includes over 4 hours of online video.
Includes instruction and a bonus chapter from Anthony Wellington.
