  1. "Continuum" is hard.

    You may return to your scheduled TB activities. :p
  2. yeah!...it just doesn't sound right on a fretted bass!!! ;)
  3. is it just me or does sean connery sound like captain pickard from time to time?
  4. Those sliding double-stops and triads are kinda hard to do, especially if you've got a new bass that hasn't had its fret ends filed.

    I hate it when people pronounce it "supposebly," instead of "supposedly."

    Or how about when people say "flustrated" rather than "frustrated"?

    Or "libary" instead of "library"?

    Or "Febuary" instead of "February"?

    Or "pen" when they mean "pin"?
  8. Er...
    Would you mean "pronunciation" or "pronouncement", because they're both different things...
  9. "Pronouncement." Were it "Pronunciation," my post wiould have been something like, "'Continuum' is pronounced kun-TIN-you-um."

  10. Ive never even attempted continuum. I recently learned portrait of tracy, but it took me forever to find the notation online. You wouldnt happen to have continuum transcribed? itd give me something to do.
  11. It's tricky, and Jaco leaves the low E ringing at fairly irregular intervals, so I don't know if I could give you too much help right now. Check back with me in a month or so.

    I actually "have to" learn the piece by a week from today, so I can perform it at my dorm's open-mic program.

    ...there's a new Jaco book by Dan Towey(HAL LEONARD) that has transcriptions(& TAB) of "Continuum" & "Portrait" & "Liberty City", etc.
    Bass Player mentioned this book + THREE others that are due to come out.
    Anyway, this book has a cd...some of the tracks are slowed down with the bass solo'd(I assume it's Towey on bass?).
    In any event, IMO, this book is a homerun...that said, there are a couple of errors-
    Don't ask me what happened to the commentary to "Palladium".
    It goes like this-
    Two full, complete paragraphs followed by
    "At section D(1:16), Jaco moves into a more traditional Salsa line in F while retain-"

    That's it...& there's NO "section D" in the transcription!

    One more thang-
    You Jaco nay-sayers who don't get 'it'-
    Check out this book & the grooves therein.
    Then we'll talk...


    Oh yeah-
    That 'outro' on "Port Of Entry" is sickening!
    ...and "Rockin' In Rhythm" swings!
  16. I had the pleasure of introducing DarkMazda to "Barbary Coast" last night. I mean, dang. That's some seriously stank funk. It's funkier than gym socks would be if they'd been worn by an offensive lineman for three weeks straight, soaked in agar, put in a sealed Tupperware, and then put in a 37-C incubator for a month.

    I found "Continuum" to be kinda easy, compared to jaco's other stuff.
