Jaco Pastorius Survey

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by Limlamlem, Mar 19, 2013.

    Hello fellow bassists, I am current in Year 12 and I have to do a research project to pass.
    So I decided to take advantage of this and do a little research on the great Jaco Pastorius, and find out exactly what aspect of his playing people were influenced by the most.
    So I was wondering if you would take some time out of your day and fill out this survey for me?


    Please note: I realize that, most of you do play an instrument or two, but the question needs to be there anyway.
    "R" is meant to say "R&B" but the site kept changing it.
    A lot of this survey assumes you have heard Jaco's first album.

    Thanks in advance!

    tl:dr Please fill out this survey to help me pass year 12

    Did the survey. Will you show us the results in this thread?

    Your survey made me realise I probably heve never listened to Jaco's music as an album. His music came to me song by song.

    Done - and evidently your first USA response.
    Your initial post was at 04:56 EDT so it's not completely surprising that it took a few minutes to get a response... Glad to see participants in other parts of the world !
  8. Done!

    Would love to see how the results fare in the end.

    Done - nice survey. I've been listening to the album quite a bit over the last month (having just bought it!).
  10. Done.
    I wasn't aware that I listen to so many different genres of music.
    Good luck with your survey.

    One methodology comment. Question five says "What is...", present tense, but goes on to say 'Did...", using past-tense. Now my initial reaction to "Donna Lee" is different than what it is now so the responses may not be what you were seeking to find out.
