If one wants to take a truly unorthodox approach to the guitar, one must learn from "The Teacha." In Guitar Secrets of Regi "The Teacha" Wooten, Regi shows his thumping/slapping, raking/sweeping, drumming, tapping, two-hand lap piano, strumming, and blowing techniques, as well as combinations of all these. Included are performance clips, an interview with Regi, and a closer look at his custom-made Ibanez. For a truly innovative and unique approach to the electric guitar, you need look no further than this DVD.
For the past four decades, Regi Wooten has been playing guitar in every style of music, in venues ranging from small dives all the way up to major festivals. Many consider Regi to be the greatest funk guitarist in the world, and when you see his oddly amazing brand of sweep picking, slapping/thumping, two-handed tapping, and strumming, there's no doubt the man is funky. In a good way, of course.
Regi Wooten began his teaching and performing career by instructing his four younger brothers on their instruments, and then using those talents to form a band of super musicians. The Wooten Brothers are a staple of the Nashville music scene and include Joseph Wooten (of The Steve Miller Band) on keys, Victor Wooten, and Futureman (of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones) on bass and drums, and Nashville's best session and road musicians.
