(I have started the video at the 3:30 mark where I found things to get particularly interesting……..)

  1. Great video, Steve! I’d watched it previously, but it’s worth watching again.
    Have your read Wooten’s book? It’s quite good.

  2. Reminds me of when Bird said “Master your instrument, master music, then forget it all and just play”. I was fortunate to have played a bunch of gigs with Victor Wooten in the ’90’s, before Bela Fleck and much of his fame. He played great, but had not yet developed all the great techniques he uses today.
