So I've played bass for some time now, and I'd set my usual modesty aside and say that I'm a very good player. But somehow I feel like I want to be able to do certain styles I can't yet, for example, the fast Jaco stuff. The thing is, I'm not really a huge fan of Jaco's harmonies. It sounds rambling and chaotic to me, but I feel that if I can't play like that, I'm missing some skill and facility that I want to have. Ideally, I want to be capable of anything, and I'd love to be able to effortlessly pull off those long 16th note runs without falling into pentatonic and blues scales, as is my wont. For example, Teen Town is a good instance of something I'd like to be ABLE to play, but is kind of unpleasant for me to listen to; I just don't much like it. I guess my question posed on the stream if thought above is this: if that style of playing is impressive to me, more so than my existing skills, is that because it's something I can't do? Does that even make sense? This is kind of a weird post, I probably won't get my point across.
