A must-have for every Jaco-Pastorius-Fan!

Cornelia24, 18.02.2014
The arrangements are very exactly, even bendings are shown!
The songs are selected well, all time classics like "Birdland" or "Continuum" are in the book.
It's important to say, that you only have arrangements for characteristical spots in the songs (like licks/ intros / chorus-lines), but even they are selected very well!
Some people like it, when they can read tabs, but I prefer the notes, so both things are shown.

It's a great book for learning more about the legendary Jazz-Bassist!

Very good

PavelK, 26.10.2014
I had only heard Pastorius, but never played, and ordered the book based on the customer reviews at Thomann.

This book offers excerpts (eg 1x verse and 1x chorus from "Come on, come over" or the legendary intro to "Birdland"), but also whole arrangements ("Portrait of Tacy") in notes and tablature. I've tried a couple of things so far - it'll probably take a while before I'm through :)

For me, the book is not only a key to the world's best bassist of all times, but a treasure trove of ideas and techniques, almost better than the bass bible by Paul Westwood (at least much more inspiring). The things can also be played well on a bundled bass, as long as there are not too many flageolett tones.

Can I recommend to anyone, regardless of whether the music or sound of Pastorius is. The fact that not always the complete songs are transcribed, I find almost advantageous - so it is clear and more song material contained.
