Jaco Pastorius – ‘Come On, Come Over’

‘Come On, Come Over’ is the second track from Jaco Pastorius’ landmark debut album. Released in August 1976, this was an album that changed everything for bass players, proving beyond doubt that the bass guitar was a powerful vehicle for soloists as well as for groove players. This track is an R&B number featuring legendary vocalists Sam and Dave. It’s also home to one of Jaco’s best-known fingerstyle funk grooves, a line that can be devilishly challenging to play accurately. In this course we’ll be breaking down the entire song and looking at all of the variations that Jaco plays.
