Jaco loved the bridge pickup and if you look in many of his videos, he also has his finger-rest on the bridge pickup. Jaco loved the bridge-pickup :) Try it out, it’s cool :) But you have to turn up the bass on your amp cause it has a lot of treble when playing there.

Yet another great lick Marlowe. Even my wife said “WOW!” It might just be me, this particular bass and KORG settings but I found that turning down the volume on the neck pickup helped produce that distinctive Jaco-type sound. Also, I found that moving the left hand fingers slightly away from strings after strumming the harmonic chord really helps the volume and sustain.

Exactly, ive turned down the neck pickup slightly and the tone control half way down too, too get that funky nasal sound
