This track was written to represent virtuoso bassist Victor Wooten, covering his work both as a solo artist, and as a member of bluegrass/fusion group Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. As you might expect, it features some very advanced slap bass techniques. The majority of this piece is based around a relatively simple chord progression over which we will be playing slap lines that gradually increase in complexity. We’ll be employing many of Victor’s favourite techniques here, such as double thumbing and popping, open string hammer-ons, chordal lines, and the tapping technique.
