We never miss an opportunity to pay homage to the one and only Jaco Pastorius.

When most of the most easily recognizable musicians are often the guitar player or the vocalists, few bass players get the place in the sun some of them righteously deserve. Jaco is one of the few who got to become a well-respected musician on his own.

Pastorius suffered from bipolar disorder through his life and might have had a different end to his story if more attentive of his illness but when it comes to talent, dedication and passion for his instrument, however, there are few who can compare.

If you have an hour and a half to spare and you are passionate about BASS playing, check out this video of Jaco teaching lessons on modern electric basses and experience what one commenter described as a “bass humiliation”!

Enjoy!
