Victor Wooten is one of the world’s most popular bass guitar players and this video proves why. The sounds he makes during this solo with his bass guitar just don’t seem possible.
If bass is one of those instruments that has never really excited you, I highly urge you to watch this clip. Think of it as a bass version of Jimmy Hendrix’s Amazing Grace solo with tons of improv.
A friend of mine who plays bass recently showed me this clip and I couldn’t believe my ears. I just kept wondering, where was the other guitar?! Incredibly, Wooten has full control of his high and low notes, and even the harmonics. When he runs out of notes to play on the scale, he just tunes it up.
Another thing you might have noticed is that unlike most rock band players, he hits the notes near his chest. I’m not sure why, but I’m guessing it has to do with gaining more control of his instrument.
