    IM NOT SURE IF THIS SHOULD BE IN HERE OR NOT I DIDNT KNOW WHERE TO PUT IT.

    YES!!!!!! JUST LAST NIGHT I WAS PLAYING MY BASS AND PUT ON SOME JACO, HIS SOLO CD, AND PUT "PORTRAIT OF TRACY" ON, THAT IS AN AMAZING SONG. IVE HAD THE CD FOR A WHILE AND THEN LOST IT SO THATS WHY IM EXCITED, BUT THATS NOT WHY IM WRITING THIS. I KNEW SOME OF THE PARTS, AND LITTLE PARTS OF THE END, BUT YESTERDAY I FINALLY GOT EVERYTHING DOWN. I AM SO STOKED THAT I CAN PLAY "PORTAIT OF TRACY" ITS A BEAUTIFUL SONG AND REALLY FUN TO PLAY TO. ITS FUN CAUSE OF THE HARMONICS AND THE FRETTED NOTES PLAYED TOGETHER, THE CONSTANT TIME CHANGE AND IT DOESNT GET BORING.( WELL ACTUALLY IT CAN) BUT THAT BESIDES THE POINT. ANYONE ELSE IN HERE FEEL THE SAME WAY I DO OR FELT THE SAME WAY WHEN YOU KNEW YOU COULD PLAY "PORTRAIT OF TRACY" ENTIRELY
    §JOIN THE CLUB§
    THIS WAS ONE OF MY SONGS THAT I HAD TROUBLE WITH AND ALWAYS WANTED TO PLAY IT AND I NOW CAN PLAY THE WHOLE THING COMPLETLY, YEAH OF COURSE THERE A FEW DEFAULTS HERE AND THERE BUT NO ONES PERFECT.
    WELL I WAS JUST LETTING EVERYONE KNOW THAT IVE MET ONE OF MY CHALLENGES AND NOW IM READY TO FACE ANOTHER CHALLENGE, EITHER TEEN TOWN BY JACO PASTORIUS OR THE STU HAMM VERSION OF LINUS AND LUCY.
    WELL HOPE TO HERE FROM SOME OF YOU GUYS/GIRLS SOON.

    Don't type with all caps again.

    FYI, i'm pretty sure a lot of the time signiture changes are just for notes where jaco held the note for as long as he felt like it.

    Jaco's FIRST wife; if you happen to hear a tune called "John & Mary" from the Word Of Mouth album...that's his kids.
    Later, Jaco married Ingrid; the Twins double-live album is for the children he had with Ingrid.

    Would you guys puh-leez have Santa bring y'all a copy of Bill Milkowski's Jaco's bio! ;)
