This is a very unique arrangement of the tune Billy Jean on bass guitar. You have to admire what the players left hand and right hand are independently doing. Very cool!

Check out Windham Hill bass artist Michael Manring, or Chapman Stick folks like Robert Culbertson.

I agree Len... it's a very cool approach to a fretted instrument.

Victor Wooten is my bass jam.

It isn't Victor himself on this YouTube (couldn't find it) but it's his composition called "Medley." A little long but stick with it ...

Brooks, that metronome thing is amazing!
I wish I'd thought to use that on my pupils when I was teaching.
The beauty of it is that it applies to any instrument and any genre.
Thanks for posting! Smile

Len, Victor Wooten’s book “The Music Lesson” is a good insight into his transcendent approach to playing music. It reads like Carlos Casteneda’s “Journey to Ixtlan.”

George, if I was to give you a call, I would feel compelled to explain why I chose to live 7 hours from the best bass players in the world. And it’s a pretty boring story.

Yep, that third rail isn’t just a danger for walking on railroad tracks.

I'm a big fan of Bootsy Collins...definitely a unique player. This one always makes me laugh:

Bootsy's Basic Funk Formula
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lk-rW81kGXs

Chris Squire was one of my main influences but when I think of bass players that "stayed in their lane" more, which I know is what a lot of people prefer, it's James Jamerson for me...absolute genius of a player.
