Jaco Pastorius Melts Himself
At first I thought this clip of Jaco Pastorius was going to melt me, however, it became apparent that Jaco started to melt himself around the 3:25 mark (Note: 1st self ownage of the blog). A couple slaps to the frets and Jaco slows down time. The trick though, is for all the mustacho's in the band to play faster. Later on, the keyboardist says, "Oh, what the heck" and starts whacking a drum. Not to be outdone, Jaco starts whacking his bass. BOOM! MELTAGE!
Let's analyze the meltage, shall we? When you just start whacking your instrument with reckless abandon and your technique is so good it works, your face is definitely on fire. How that drummer didn't have a "time to make the donuts" meltdown I have no idea, but for the rest of us, just another snapshot into Jaco's insane abilities.
Interesting point they make: why the hell would musicians want to get on stage and try to improvise? Don't they know nobody listens to that crap?
I'M PAYING FOR YOU TO PLAY IT LIKE ITS CUT ON THE CD SO MY WIFE DOESN'T GET BORED A-HOLE!!!! Sorry, your wife is probably going to leave around the 6 minute mark.
Anywho, this classic recording sets a new gold standard for any young inspiring mustached musicians trying to play complicated jazz. Jaco Pastorius, the man, the myth, the chart
Looks like Alcohol is a 1.4 in harm and nearly a deuce in dependence. All the good ones...
