A very well-written book teaching the popular fingerstyle bass/chord "walking" jazz guitar technique. This book is made to order for the novice fingerstyle jazz guitarist who wants to tie chord progressions together with great sounding bass lines. Through short exercises and original compositions, Paul Musso establishes theoretical ground rules for a systematic approach to playing creative bass lines. Technical and harmonic concepts are gradually introduced with the goal that students are able to lay down authoritative bass lines of their own invention. In notation and tablature.
