Here’s something to keep you busy this weekend. Bassist Jan Stankiewicz breaks down the Victor Wooten classic “U Can’t Hold No Groove”, in a really easy to follow format.
The tune comes from Vic’s 2004 album, A Show of Hands, which was re-released last year.
Jan shares “I would like to emphasize that this is how I play the song, and not necessarily how it is played by Victor Wooten himself. Still, I hope it will help you learn the basics of this song. I broke the song down into several patterns, following a more or less chronological order (but keep in mind that certain patterns keep recurring in the song.)”
If you’d like to see Jan play it in its entirety, well, there’s a video for that too:
