And Finally, Jaco 16th's
by Chris Tarry
His influence on bass playing today is everywhere. Listen to his various solo albums for a healthy dose of everything Jaco. "Jaco Pastorius" and "Word of Mouth" are just two.
Listen all the previous 16th note studies to see how we have followed the liniage through Jamerson and Rocco to Jaco 16th's that dance. By dance I mean that Jaco leaves holes, plays off the beat, and works with all the different 16th note combinations.
Check out this Jaco esque line below. To get it under your fingers practice it slowly at first.
