If you haven’t read Victor Wooten’s book “The Music Lesson”, you’re missing out. Bassist Victor Wooten goes tells a semi-allegorical tale about learning the 10 elements of music, and it’s blowing my mind right now as I read it. While I love a lot of the concepts on music, there’s quite a bit a disagree with regarding some of the eastern mystic philosophy in the book.
If you’re a musician and especially if you’re a bassist, this will radically change the way you think about music, practice, and playing with other musicians. Here’s a link to the audiobook version, as well as a hard copy.
