: Hey, all you bass cats all over the world... Got a question: I recently got myself the "Victor Wooten bass Day '98" video, and it's so great... I love it. On some songs he does something that mekes me curious. He kinda plays one thing, that he loops into some sort of machine, then loops another thing over that, and so on, until it sounds like a whole band is playing, although it's just bass. Then he soloes over that, and it's really a neat thing... I think he controls everything with some pedals on the floor, don't know. I figure, such a thing would do wonders for ones training. What is it? What's it called? Where can I find one? Are they expensive? What brand is best? Are there other cats than Vic who uses it? Maybe someone of you guys has some personal experience with this? And so on... Anyone who has got some info, I'd appreciate it.
I have that video too and was wondering what he uses.
Bad thing is I got to meet Vic in Sept at a clinic he did in Norfolk VA and
forgot to ask him! I got to talk with him at length, had him show me some of
his lines (drastically slooowed down). He even autographed my bass for me. A
custom DP with Alembic electronics and pickups which I wasn't going to sell
anyway...but I am Definitly not going to ever sell it now. And to all those guys
who may think it is all in his bass...He let me play the Fodera bass he brought
with him. It was nice but to me no nicer than mine for several thousands less.
IT'S VIC!!!! His command of the instrument is amazing. But above all his
personality... so down to earth and willing to help, freely sharing his knowledge
and experience on bass...MAN!!! I didn't mean to go on and on.
Someone please let us know what Vic uses to loop!!!!! THANKS!!!!
