    This book is a complete tool to study bass and the Jaco Pastorius style. Ray Peterson was a Jaco's student and shows the method and the musical philosophy of his teacher in this beautiful work. It is advisable to fretless bass, because the method is about the Jaco's...

    style with some exemples to play. It would be helpful if the student knew a little music theory and have understanding intervals.
