Hey, my friend:
As part of a birthday present to my 20 year old son, (an incredible bassist), I took him with me to Nashville this last spring to a weekend gathering of about 30 Christian bass players from all around the US. Part of the weekend festivities was a Vic Wooten concert - the last stop of his Yin/Yang tour. The tickets were only 15.00 (US) so I figured bad seats in a stadium... but what the heck - it's Vic, right?
The venue was a nightclub in downtown Nashville, my son and I got there early, and ended up standing three feet from the center of the stage. We were three feet from this man as he played! It so incredible to watch this dude go. And to top it off - he is a genuinely nice man. I'm like you - I get so inspired watching someone like him play, I run home to practice. I have been playing for 30 years, and I am a very proficient player, but this guy...... wow. Every generation seems to have a player that redefines the bass, and in my eyes, he is the guy for this generation. There are alot of incredible players, no doubt about it, but Vic Wooten, in my opinion, is this generations torch bearer, following after Stanley Clark and Jaco. oooooooo.... better put up my flame shields.....
