    Do a search on Google..that's what it's for. There are several web sites that have free Jaco sheet music and many more that have tabs.

    I just looked at the Teen Town transcription on the site Pacman posted. I reckon it's full of mistakes, what do you guys reckon?

    EDIT: Well, not full of 'em, but has a few

    The first F13 bar has some problems...
    Beat 2-
    I usually slide/hammer onto the A(from Beat 1's "a of 1"'s G#).
    And that bar's "a of 4" should be D#(leads chromatically into the next bar's E).

    Have you seen the somewhat recent Jaco transcription books(from Hal Leonard Publications, I think).
    All 4 of 'em are pretty darn decent.

    "Come On, Come Over" looks pretty good to me.

    I was going to say the lucas pickford site - I think this is the best source of free Jaco transcriptions - but as Jim says the recent series of books are great. I bought "A Portrait of Jaco - the Solos Collection". Very nice explanations of what Jaco is doing as well as the sheet music.

    That figures.
    Of the 4, I bought The Solos Collection last!


    It did blow my mind seeing the intro to "Punk Jazz" charted out. Now I have no excuse.
    One of those books(the one with the cd) has a nice little Joni groove excerpt("Talk To Me").
    There's also the "3 against 4" Funk of "Kuru" explained in the same book...during that tune's pino solo, Jaco drops of the last beat; he's now in "3" while the rest of the band keeps bangin' away in "4".
    I now use "Blackbird" as a little warm-up thingee while the others are setting up; it's amazing-Everyone recognizes it after 2 beats or so.

    It just looked to have the most interesting stuff, best value for money for me and also the particular lines I have never managed to play, in over 20 years of trying!! ;)
