Victor Wooten is one of the best bass guitar players in the world. In this TEDEd video, he shares some principles that apply to music, but I believe they can be applied to any art form. I first saw this and wanted to share it a long time ago. At the time I was involved with an organization that I thought might take issue with some of the things Wooten has to say. For the record I think he is right on the money. I love the way he parallels learning to speak with the way we should learn to create. From “mistaking” your way to proficiency to creating with people of all levels of ability, there are so many huge lessons in this video. You simply must take five minutes and check it out for yourself. Then go out and create and while you’re at it, help someone else to create as well.

Thanks to Jessie Nilo at Art Fruition for bringing this clip back to the front of my mind.,
