this dude is nasty as hell. he is from camaroon and is quickly becoming one of my favorite bass players.
here are a few vids. quality not great. the first one you have to turn the sound up.
he is worth digging into.

Stanley Clarke says that Armand is his favorite bassist which is enough for me cause Stanley is the man.

here he is with stanley





have to go to about a minute 30

Simply the Dope TST, and thank you.
And Stanley's Series 1 might be older than Armand. The irony..
I still have too much nickel in my mix to slap around with,
but the sustain is worth it. Just gotta push some chocolate
malts down through that thumb somehow..

victor wooten is insane. sometimes i get tired of it because he slaps and taps almost exclusively. definitely a virtuoso.

since you like him check out this concert. its the best. victor wooten, stanley clarke, and marcus miller.

i played guitar for like 10 years. i got my left ring finger cut off in the foundry so i had to stop. ive tried it again but the 6 strings give me trouble. i cant finger all the chords cause my finger.
so i decided to try the bass. been at it for a while and it is much easier on my hand.
ive been working on my slapping and popping and it is quite hard. when you get the right sound though it is a great feeling.

i cant imagine being as good as people like wooten, clarke, pastorius, claypool etc etc.
i cant even fathom is most of the time

Ya I have seen that concert. I have seen Victor live several times. Mostly with Bella Fleck and the Flecktones. I saw him live with his band which has some of his family members. He's truly amazing live. Bass Player magazine awarded him bass player of the year 3 years in a row.

Stanly Clarke has always been one of my faves to. Have seen him a few times with Al Demeola and Jean-Luc Ponty. Amazing live show. So much talent on stage.

I followed Ponty when he was with John McLaughlin and mahavishnu orchestra. This is a group I never got a chance to see. I did get to see him at a solo concert once. Was an incredible show.

Between you and me and that guy from Man_of_War,
I can imagine you being better than any of three Tonys
because you worked around something as trivial as missing
s#it on your anatomy.
And I KNOW you-- you're better than me and Entwistle put
together-- because your anger about Les Claypool made you
study where he was bashing it about.
D fifth. You'll be fine, I'll be dead. HAve a nice millenium, sport.
PS. I'm old enough to remember the Cryan Shames. And there
was a bass player I'd like to introduce you to if you like.
