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?
