    Can someone send me a tab for Jaco Pastorius - Cissy Strut. I love this song. It's probably my fav. jaco song. Thanks.
     
  2. It was done by the Meters first.

    I think it revoles around an A or G minor scale.

    Try to see if you can find the notes.

    Good Luck.

    Jaco did a version of Cissy Strut? Really? Wow. I did not know that.

    Anyway, George Porter Jr.'s version is based of, what looks to me most like, a C minor pentatonic, (b5). The verse riff almost just walks down that scale, from the root. Obviously the rhythm must be felt.
     
  4. Its on one of the Live in NY disks.
     
  5. hehe, sorry that I goes into this a bit late.

    Yeah, I have heard Jaco's Version as well, its a whooping 5mins+ track compared to the shorter Meters version.

    The Verse are almost the same, the keyboard solo was played by the guitarist with Jaco playing lots of stuffs in there.

    The original version is on C key, but Jaco's version is on A key. Wonder why? Easier to play I guess?

    I have got the mp3 of Jaco's version... is it legal to share it with u guys? :D
