Getting Different Tones From A Fender Jazz Bass

The iconic Fender Jazz bass guitar has been imitated for decades. The instrument is so versatile and this video shows you how to coax a number of different tones from it.

Some famous Fender Jazz players include Jaco Pastorius, Joe Osborn, Bobby Vega, Marcus Miller, and Geddy Lee. It can be played in so many genres due to the pickup placement allowing for multiple different tones. Funk, blues, jazz, rock, pop - it can do it all!

Watch the video to learn how to alter the tone by selecting certain pickups and/or altering your hand position.
