So a couple days ago I decided to learn Victor Wootens "U Can't Hold No Groove." I'm just working on the first part right now but for the life of me I can not do the muted notes properly. On the tabs it shows some parts where there would be 2 muted notes on the A string, then 2 on the G string, then A again then G again. Anybody know how he does these in the song? I can't pop the G string fast enough. Thanks a lot guys!

TL;DR: How does Victor Wooten play the muted notes in the first half of "U Can't Hold No Groove"?

He's Victor Wooten. That's how.

But you can probably look up either someone playing it on YouTube, or a slap lesson. There's also a video of Victor explaining some of his style somewhere. Otherwise, just practice until you can build up that speed.

Women = time x money
time = money
Money = √evil
women = √evil x √evil
women = evil
Just a guess but he probably uses two seperate fingers to pop the g string and either two flicks of the wrist for the A or a double thump.
