Holy crap, that kid's just about got it all. Ridiculous. :bowdown:
The only area I can see for improvement is that his fingerstyle grooves could stand to be a little more slippery, but that's a matter of feel and not technique. And he's certainly got a few years ahead of him to get it down. :lol:
Shit, technically he's way beyond Jaco already. Jaco was pretty much a one-trick pony with his fretless technique. Now, in terms of the beauty of the groove and the harmonic content of his improvision, the kid's got nothing yet on Jaco, but give him a few years in working bands and we'll see.
This kid does a very good slap and pop, but I was more impressed by his Stanley Clarke-type fingerstyle soloing. That very aggressive plucking style that Stanley got from years of playing upright bass seems to come naturally to this kid. I wonder if he also plays upright?
I keep forgetting how young he is when I have this playing behind other windows. Jesus the kid is good. Like, I'd be seriously impressed if he was my age or older, the fact that he's that young...fuuuuck.
