    Does anyone out there that can give some tips or even easy fingerings for Chromatic Fantasy as done by Jaco?

    I have the intention of playing it at a music festival early next year (2003) and I want to start early on this, but i got stumped at the 3rd bar...:D

    Like for example, what would be a good fingering for the first triplet in bar 3, Bb, D, F?

    I kinda had an crazy idea to tap some of it, but I want to play it "similiar" to Jaco ha

    Later

    I'd finger that arpeggio 1-2-4. Quite a stretch, anyway.
     
  3. I'm working on that song myself, I dont have any specific advice, but try just playing it slowly with different finger patterns, find out what is comfortable, and then just keep playing, after a while your fingers should start to move faster naturally and you'll be cruisin'!
