Watch the Mr. J.P. online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from 50 Pro Bass Grooves You MUST Know

Another of the most ground breaking bass players of all time was the great Jaco Pastorius. While Jaco was certainly influenced by those who came before him, James Jameson, Francis "Rocco" Prestia to name a few, his use and clean execution on 16th notes changed the game for every bass player who followed. Here (over the same groove as the last example) is an approximation of one of Jaco's signature licks. You may be at a session and the leader will say "Bass player, give me a Jaco groove". Well, now you know one and that is the purpose of this course!
