: Hi, I just want a few opinions on this...
: I noticed that a lot of bass players object to the six or seven string basses.
: Personally, I think they're great for soloing. However, I also know that it is easy to step
: away form your job as a bass player in a band using the higher strings.
: This leads to the next question (I just want opnions): Why do you think Victor Wooten
: only plays on four strings? Is his technique harder on a six or seven string?

Hey, I think Victor only uses 4 strings (exclusivly?...really? he does'nt play anything else?) because he knows that 4 strings is all you need. 4 strings are a beautiful thing. I bought a 6 string a while ago. Like you said, its great for soloing.....but........eh......I just ordered some new strings fot it......I am going to string it F#, B, E, A, D, G and see what that does for the peaples feet. I think I am delving into the rediculous but, so what. F#.....geez........peace.......John
