A mind game question. The lead guitarist in our jazz trio wants us to do Metheny's Bright Sized Life, which he's loved since he was knee-high to a ukulele. I'm cool with the song, chord chart, riff, and so on, but no way can I do a Jaco-type line on it. The guitarist is fine with me doing the bassist-marking-the-changes, it's me that's getting in my way. Any recommendations for keeping the Jaco ghost from breathing down my neck? I have been studying his line, but I know that if I try to use much of it I am going to spectacularly screw up (apart from being way too busy even if I did get it). If anyone does this song, what approach do you take? I know the best way to learn is to set yourself something you think you can't do, and work like a dog until you can - but that doesn't mean trying to imitate a force of nature.
