I hear so much about jaco on here, never really listened to anything by him though. Started searchin around youtube for some techniques on playing fretless and I ran in to a Portrait of Tracy Vid... so I watched it, so it as being really nice. Ran into some other vids w/ jaco, and I came across this one, Jaco Pastorious "Modern Electric Bass": He seems to go over some of his methods and his history and whatnot... seems pretty cool. I will admit though, when he shows stuff, he seems to be more of a show-off then actually educating (he doesn't go slow enough for us newbs to see what he's doing ), but he's still a great player. As one person has commented, "he's able to best represent what he feels on his bass more then other players." or somethin like that. I'm only on vid #5 out of 10. But through this vid it has taught me to: -play closer to the fret lines... -I can play faster closer to the bridge cuz of strings being tighter -I'm still working on artificial harmonics, but I'm able to get some on my fretless... pretty cool. Anything that jaco (or any other bassists for that matter) has taught you as in terms of tips and tricks that make your playing better?
