How To Play – The Flecktones – Sex In A Pan

Jan Stankiewicz proudly presents a lesson from:


FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites Hey everyone, someone here asked whether I could do a tutorial for 'Sex In A Pan' By Bela Fleck and The Flecktones. I finally found some time to make the video, so here it is! Again, this video shows how I play the song, and not necessarily how it's played by Victor Wooten ๐Ÿ˜‰

The sound of your jazz reflects the fantastic good left and of course righthand technique. Its all in the hands ๐Ÿ™‚

The first four notes are B, D, E, G, (or 9th to 12th on D-string, followed by 9th to 12th on G-string).

I have various ways to learn a song. I use my ears most importantly ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I also try to look at video’s where the song is played. I do have a program by which I can slow down audio, it’s called Goldwave. Furthermore, I know that Victor Wooten is a master of efficiency, so I can sometimes workout the positioning based on that fact ๐Ÿ™‚

That should be A to C, not C A. Plaese for give the mistakes.

Thank you.I am attempting to play this on a bass like yours (modified with John East preamp)When I attempt the muted ghost notes on the g and d strings, they sound like a regular “muted snap”. I know that may be hard to understand. In addition, are you going from A TO C A, OR B-FLAT to D-flat at the start?
Last, do you have a special program to slow this down in order to learn is, or are you just a Bass Genius?!
Thank you

I simply rest the fingers of my left hand on the strings and pluck them with my right hand ๐Ÿ˜‰
