Pat Metheny

Jaco (Pat Metheny’s Solo) – Pat Metheny Group

I’ve posted a couple of John Scofield solo transcriptions since I started this blog just over a month ago, but nothing by Pat Metheny – so i’m rectifying that with this solo, taken from the third track of the Pat Metheny Group’s eponymous first record and named, of course, after the great bassist Jaco Pastorius.

This is a fairly simple solo (with only the licks in bar 9 and 16 posing much of a technical challenge) but with some classic Metheny phrases and turnaround licks. Swung 16ths throughout!
