Jaco Pastorius - Modern Electric Bass Guitar

This is one of the most amazing videos of I ever seen. Jaco Pastorius is giving a clinic on his unique bass playing techniques, those that have made him one of the greatest bassists of all time. His fluid, melodic style, the use of harmonics, popping, and touch, all are demonstrated here. He is being interviewed here by Jerry Demott. Jaco demonstrates scales and exercises he  uses, and plays songs from his ground breaking solo album. He passing was a great loss. It is wonderful to have Jaco's words and playing preserved on recordings and video.
