Stomping Grounds
written by Bela Fleck
performed by Bela Fleck and the Flecktones on Live Art I 
bass played by Victor Wooten
bass line tabulature by Mike McElhaney
 
As you can imagine it is nearly impossible to transcribe a song 
played by Victor Wooten note for note. Like most other songs 
that the Flecktones play, every time it is played it comes out a 
little different.  This is meant to be a guideline.
 
GOOD LUCK!!!  
 
h = Hammer-on
I didn’t tab out the 8 measure bass introduction, but
its pretty simple to figure out.  It starts out with Vic
strumming a chord that I believe starts:
10th fret on the A
12th fret on the D 
and open on the G
 
Part A (melody)
Repeat 2 times

After Part C, Bela does an harmonic thing for 8 measures 
and Vic improvises around a G.
Then Bela goes once through a longer variation on Part D 
while Vic just peddles eighth notes on a low G.
The band then comes back in at Part E

First solo section:
8 measures trading twos, bass & banjo 
then 8 measures trading ones, bass & banjo
 
Then Vic and Bela play Part D in unison and go right into Part E
 
Second solo section:
16 measures trading ones,  banjo, sax, bass & mandolin 
(this instrumentation will vary depending on the version of the song)
then the band just has fun hitting off beat notes (mostly G) for 4 measures.
 
The entire band (except Future Man) then plays Part D in unison 
and again goes right into Part E 
 
After that, the song goes back to Part A with Vic jamming the 
melody along with them.
Next, the band plays Part B in a round starting with the bass.
 
The song then ends on Part C.
