Giants of Bass – Victor Wooten

Course Duration: 1 Hour & 17 Minutes | Difficulty Level: 8

‘The Wicked Vicar’ is an original composition that was written to represent virtuoso bassist Victor Wooten. It is representative of his work both as a solo artist, and as a member of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones. The majority of this piece is based around a relatively simple chord progression over which slapped parts are played that gradually increase in complexity. Many of Victor’s techniques are utilised here, including double thumbing, open string hammer-ons, and the tapping technique.
