Hi Guys ... New Book for ALL MUSICIANS ! ! !
Want to let you know about this new book from Victor Wooten, It's called "The Music Lesson" A spiritual search for growth through Music.
Some great concepts on Music & Life. ( No scales or Theory ) Even new approaches for live shows and how to get people to listen ! ! !
I bought this book, read it, and was so inspired that I wanted to tell the world so now, spoke with Vic, and now I am selling the book only $15.95.
It brought together all "The Elements" of music at once. Phrasing, Articulation, Tone, Feel, Space, Rhythm, Listening, Dynamics, and more .............. Everything I have learned and was still learning over the last 25 years was now in the palm of my hands.
It will change the way you play, teach, learn, and listen to music as well as the way you see somethings in Life ! Great for players, teachers, and people living life.

Have you ever wondered what the greatest musicians in the world know that you don't? Do you have thousands of books with all the same information rehashed in a different way? This book takes us to a different place; no scales or theory here. We've all heard that Music is a language and this book shows us why it is a language and how to speak it. Lacing the book with imaginative metaphors and unlikely comparisons, there's more wisdom contained in these pages than most musicians will ever learn in a lifetime. If you're ready to explore Music beyond the classroom, then this is what you've been waiting for. It is said that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear...are you ready ?
