Victor Wooten and Carter Beauford: Resolution

Here’s a great look at Victor Wooten and Dave Matthews Band drummer Carter Beauford in studio and performing a great tune from Yin-Yang.

“This is another song that Carter had to walk in and learn on the spot,” Victor said. “He switches between 6/8, 3/4, and who knows what during this song. As usual he did an amazing job.”

Victor uses a 6-string for the bass line here, and you can hear the tracks of his Fodera Tenor bass for the solo and intro parts, and his Ken Lawrence Nylon string piccolo bass for the chords and solo after the bridge (right side).
