this is great but the 6, 6 is supposed to be 6,8 and then the 8,8 is
supposed to be 7 and 10. that way sounds better but either way its good
Honestly you are the bass guitar player I watch on YouTube !!!
I meant the only…..
Interesting, well this is the way I heard it so it sounds right to me haha.
to all bass players….. ignore your strongest finger and work with your
pinky the most…… It will give you a HUGE advantage…..
@ShakeYourCarBass that’s just one of jaco’s signature basslines. if you
listen to his early tapes you can hear how he slowly started using that
lick. it’s cool to hear how he got ideas that he used later on in his life
from when he was 19 years old.
is this really Jaco? Wow! if it is this unbelievable. it looks like him and
the hands look like his but is this him?
great player .,Rude in a Subtle way..
@Bmadink There wouldn’t be Victor without Jaco
@musician184 He’s a famous bad ass bassist– Jerry Jemmott. One of the few
R&B and jazz performers that was a heavy influence on Jaco. By this time in
his career, Jaco’s mental health had blacklisted him from performing. He
wouldn’t show up; he’d painted his face black and tossed his bass into the
Sea of Japan, etc. Jemmott got him this gig. Jaco was living in the street!
Jaco USED to just walk in backstage of any famous performer and be welcomed
but in the end was killed by a bouncer at a BAR.
what kind of guitar is that one the interviewer has?
who’s the guy talking to jaco?
I’ve watched a lot of Pastorius videos now and I just don’t see it. No
groove, just fast widdly-widdly stuff and the overuse of harmonics. Like
every bass virtuoso. The interviewer is a better bass player. He
demonstrates groove. I’m guessing only a tiny proportion of Pastorius
devotees can dance.
@Fungoloify okay listen to “Come on Come over” and get back to us.
@guitarstudent101 good point
how old is jaco in this video??? anyone have a clue?
…arguing over ‘who is better than who’ is as ridiculous as arguing over
what the best plate of food is. Fact of the matter – its subjective. Always
has been, always will be. Technique never equates creativity. Allmusic and
the like will often voice their know it all pretentious opinions but it
NEVER takes away from the fact that the human race is unique and we like
what we like regardless of the “experts” opinions.
he was one groovy motherfucker, that jaco
“stupid youtubers who think people like pete wance” …or geddy lee
@Fungoloify you’re drunk! aren’t you?
i love how you can hear jerry say “DAMN!” at the 3:34 mark!
He’s the Jimi Hendrix of Bass
Jaco fuckin rules motherfuckerz!!!!
I don’t know why you’re getting thumbs down, I thought that was quite funny
@Fungoloify No. You don’t see it b/c this is close to the end of Jaco’s
short life. He was the SHIT, no kidding. But you are now seeing a guy who
was suffering from Bi-Polar Shizophrenia and alcohol/drug abuse. He
couldn’t get a gig! That’s why you don’t see it– he was one of those
shining stars that burns to brightly too fast and dies. His old friend &
bassist, Jerry Jemmott who interviews him here must have felt it. No
This all comes from an instructional VHS (then DVD) “Jaco Pastorius: Modern
Electric Bass” which was filmed in the mid 80′s just before his death. The
lesson book came with the video which was the written music (no tabs) for
each exercise referenced in the video. You can probably find it on amazon
or ebay, if you’re a bassist or into Jaco or jazz it’s pretty interesting
to watch/play along with or use as a practice tool which is pretty neat.
@Fungoloify no offense but are you really that stupid? can you not see the
genius 16th note grooves and genius fills? it doesn’t have to be slow to
have groove, look at tower of power.
jaco is a genius, and a truely cool cat.
Jaco a jazz snob? Jazz snobs only play jazz. to them there is nothing else
worth hearing. obviously jaco is more than that.
