Jaco Pastorius – Modern Electric Bass
Oct 19 2013
Widely regarded as one of the finest bassists of his generation, Jaco Pastorius combined remarkable technique and singular tone with an adventurous and highly melodic approach to his instrument, and his work with Weather Report, Herbie Hancock, and Joni Mitchell earned praise from musicians, critics, and fans before his tragic death in 1987.
Originally released in 1985, Jaco Pastorius: Modern Electric Bass features the master musician demonstrating his techniques, offering his philosophies about music and performing, demonstrating practice exercises, and jamming with John Scofield and Kenwood Dennard.
The onetime Weather Report bassist covers his roots and influences, how he developed his technique, fretless vs. fretted electric bass, right and left hand technique, harmonics and arpeggios, practice routines and so on. This DVD is a solid instrctional video for electric bass players. A lesson book is included (for those who can’t keep up with the Jaco’s speed). Its cool to see Scofield and Denard sitting in for the jams too!
