Comments about Alfred Victor Wooten - Super Bass Solo Technique (DVD):
This DVD offers a basic insight on how VW plays and how his style was conceived. He offers brief tutorials (really brief) on how to do his coveted double slap technique, chord progressions, and improvising during a live performances and much more. Surprisingly, this video shows more of VW playing than actually showing us the technique but this DVD is not for beginners (sorry). The main source of knowledge that I received from the video stems from VW encouring having fun and being creative. In conclusion, this DVD is a worthy addition to your music dVD library. While I was "trying" to play along VW, my family members were blown away by some of the licks VW pulled off.
