I have been an admirer of Victor Wooten's playing for some time, technical mastery and all round musicianship for some time. I saw this book listed on here and thought, lets see what he has to say. Well, although some of the story is quite 'out there' in a good way, the lessons are solid and remind you that music is not all about flashy techniques, or the best/latest gear, its about enjoying what you play, and having something to say, musically. I read this book just before I attended a four day Jazz playing course and almost everything in this book (not the crazy characters, although there are plenty of those in Jazz!) rang true. Buy it, read it, and just play!
