A walking bass line is the most common approach to jazz bass playing, but it is also used in rock music, blues, rockabilly, R&B, gospel, Latin, country and many other types of music. The term 'walking' is used to describe the moving feeling that quarter notes create in the bass part. The specific goal of this book is to familiarize players with the techniques used to build walking bass lines and to make them aware of how the process works. Through the use of 90-minutes' worth of recorded rhythm tracks, players will have the opportunity to put the new learning directly into action. This book literally gives bassists the tools they need to build their own walking bass lines.

  • August 31, 2007 Must-have for jazz bass players

    I've recently discovered what I think is a must-have for jazz bass players. This book takes you through the theory needed to create your own bass lines. It includes lots of blues exercises plus common chord progressions used in standards. The included CD is well-produced.

  • April 16, 2007 This book made sense

    I really liked the structure of this book. It takes you step by step through creating bass lines and it makes SENSE! Probably for a beginner bass player with a desire to learn some theory with bass playing.
