Evan Brewer: Untitled (with some pretty wicked tapping)

Evan Brewer just put out a new video of a song he’s working on for his next solo release. Brewer utilizes a 5-string bass tuned EADGC and plays some some pretty wicked tapping on the untitled track.

In our recent interview, Brewer described his new material as “super erratic,” adding that he was hoping to finish up the material this fall and tentatively release an album early next year. Stay tuned for details.

      Well Tom, you did kind of present a situation in which every musician should be subject to comparison against the masterclass of their specific instrument, at which point, we would all be intimidated. He’s offering a valid counter argument, if the standard at which to strive for is all the way up to Victor Wooten levels of technique and musicality, then we should have given up after Pastorius. He’s not saying he or anyone else should actually “give up”, it’s just that by the logic of constant comparison, most people wouldn’t be considered half decent in their field and at the end of the day that’s not why we play.

      Your appreciation of Wooten is founded, but for the sake of variety us ignorant bass plebs have to sacrifice that standard or else we’ll be listening to A Show of Hands on a loop for eternity. Not the worst way to spend a lifetime, but you know what I mean.

      Last I heard Victor Wooten is friends with and a fan of Evan Brewer. He also studied under Victors brother Regi (the one who came up with the “double thumb”), who he counts as “one of his best friends” (cited from a notreble interview lol)
