I couldn't open the file in question but I have seen a DVD where Victor Wooten and his brother Reggie do a "slap off" competing against each other with Reggie playing slap style on his white Strat as well!!

I wouldn't mind having just a bit of Victors talent.........boo hoo!

Yeah - thats the one. It's Victor and Reggie Wooten. Victor is just a god, its funny that the clip can't actually keep up with his right hand - it just becomes a blur. If you see it on DVD as Texjamm said its pretty incredible. I've enjoyed sitting through his instructional DVD's many times and I don't play bass, its just the spectacle.

Oh but Reggie Wooten pisses me off, popping and tapping like that on the guitar just sounds hideous in my opinion. Play some real notes ! :D

For some vintage Wooten check out the album "A Show of Hands" - it has the face melting "Me and my Bass Guitar" on it... sweet.

That is fucking mental!!!! Although how come the guitarist has something which resembles hair scrunchys on the neck of his guitar?

mutes the strings more efficiently :)

apparently loads of lead players use it when recording solos and that.

Totally, it helps get rid of those nasty "ghost" notes that are created - try just tapping a note (let's say G at string 3, fret 12) and listen to the note that should sound but also a faint dissonant (usually) harmonic. It also stops the open strings from ringing out and any unwanted string noise can be reduced by the use of a mute.

You can buy a mute, I think they can be quite pricey, which sits on the nut and can be dropped at will.

I usually use a (clean) sock tied round the neck lightly. It's one for the studio only though obviously ;)

Yeah Im sure it doesnt look very metal having a sock wrapped round your guitar hehe:up:

Im off to try this out, hope I have a clean one, although crusty may provide a metallic type resonance...:laughing:
