    I still remember a guy asking at the workshop "How can I overcome plateaus my learning? At times I feel I can't improve my technique inspite of loads of practice".

    And he replied something like "Why do you want to avoid the plateaus? If you keep climbing up and never look back, you'll never be able to appeciate how far you have come. So stop, and give yourself time to smell the roses. Be patient and use what you have learned in a jam situation rather than practising technique alone. You will master it if you keep trying to adapt it to your playing."

    That just made me realise that his understanding of music goes much deeper than all the theory that you can find in books. I felt like a 10 year old kid listening to daddy's words of wisdom.

    ****in' A. i went for a TM stevens (one of my favorite bass players of all time, along with bootsy) workshop and he told us exactly the same thing - stop doing "frickel frackel" and truly feel the music you play. some of the greatest basslines are simple as shit but make the song - another one bites the dust, papa was a rolling stone, se.x machine to name a few.

    i've always felt that putting thought, feeling and purpose to every note you play, however fast or slow, is more important than any technique you will ever learn. technique doesn't define the music; the music you want to bring out will necessitate the use of a technique to make it. truly loving the music you make will automatically set your quality standards higher and force you to improve.
    What you have just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Wooten also said that he didn't need any more than 4 strings on the bass guitar. Of course he can do more than most can even imagine on those 4 strings. Stupid people trying to add strings to instruments for no reason (read I can't play 6 strings well enough to consider playing more).
