Classical method used or referred to by Jaco Pastorius?

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by Kleinzeitnz, Jun 15, 2018.

  1. I know about the "formally self-taught" thing and have tried googling this work without success.

    Could someone please remind me of the title and author of the classical method Jaco referred to a couple of times? I don't remember where (although it was possibly on the 'Modern Electric Bass Video', which I no longer have a playable copy of - it isn't mentioned in the text and transcriptions). As far as I can tell, it also wasn't mentioned in the Milkowski biography. Jaco used it as a reference work for arpeggio exercises and the like and it was possibly written for cellists. The author had a possibly eastern European name, as far as I can recall. Thanks.

  4. Thanks, JTE and Lee. That's the one - it isn't indexed in the earlier edition of Milkowski I have, that's why I couldn't find it. I appreciate the prompt responses.

    The Dotzhauer Cello Etudes were mentioned by him, or his student Ray Peterson in his book IIRC

    Coltrane spent a lot of time practicing Slonimsky. I never got much out of it (yet)
