Continuing the discussion from Share Your Favorite Bass Lines! about Victor Wooten’s “The Music Lesson” book:
Who’s read this amazing book?
I read it when it first came out - 2007? 2008? - and have reread a handful of times. Also I’m just realizing that I don’t know where my copy is… I think I lent it to a saxophone player and it never came back to me, damn wind instruments.
The 10 Elements of Music concept alone has had a really profound impact on how I play, and how I teach, especially the emphasis it lends to things that are often undertaught/underdiscussed, like Listening and Space.
I love Victor’s teaching approach, maybe we can get him in on a future Bass Buzz course.
