Victor Wooten Bass Camp

Gosh! I didn't know such a thing existed. Thanks to Lucas - who attended camp recently - I now do!


Some of the things covered at the camp are:
• Awareness (in Life and in Music)
• The role of the Bass Guitar
• Soloing techniques and concepts
• How to find food and water
• How to make a quick emergency shelter that can keep you alive in below freezing temperatures
• Basic animal tracking

Animal tracking *and* bass soloing?? Tha't sall you had to say.

Frankly this sounds awesome. I guess you'd have to attend the course to fully appreciate the link between nature and music, but I'm liking the idea. Maybe that old Tiger Stripe Bass of Woody's will find its calling after all.
