Look at that, that is absoutly insane. Felix Pastorius. What a stretch...
I hope that's a short-scale bass! I can only pull off 1-5 on my Jazz.
The D would buzz all the way if he played that 7th fret, he only reaches it by a few millimeters. If that's a fretless he's out of tune
For the record, I can stretch 5 frets..
I just checked, I can do it. It hurt my finger a litthe though!!
I'll try to post a picture. I can't do it and take a picture at the same time!
Stretching a perfect fourth interval from about the 7th fret onwards is my comfortable limit. Also it can come in pretty handy in developing some cool contemporary sounds in the higher regions of the neck.
I can do that, but i use my Thumb instead of my Index Finger.
I can't do more than 1-6 with my index and middle. Thumb will put me right on top of 7. Good grief; that guy can reach almost an inch farther than me. Now those are bassist hands.
I don't get it, He is stretchin 1-6, his pinky is on the 6th fretline, no? Anway, I believe it might be a 35", since he has got really big hands, I can vouch for that.
I'd like to be able to stretch that far. The best I can pull off is a sloppy 1-5, but my bass is a long scale, 35" i think?
I could do that with a 6-string with ONE finger. Pshhh..
Wait... that doesn't make sense, nevermind.
That is insane, i swear ive seen jaco do that before.. or in a picture.. it must be in the joints..
I can do 1-5, nothing special here.
Youve seen jaco do that (effortlesly) in Portrait of Tracy. Although thats a 2-6, The pic is a 1-6 which is even more insane.
He is most likely grabbing an artificial harmonic with his pinky.
He is looking more like his dad every day!
I've heard that Stanley Clarke has a tremendous reach.
Found another pic of him doing the same thing but 5-12th fret..
Pffft. Jaco only needed FOUR strings to grab those harmonics.
Who is he? and Is he good?
I can only do a buzzy 1-5
Please Pardon my ignorance
