Walk, don't run.

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. This book familiarizes you with the techniques used to build walking bass lines. Through the use of 90-minutes' worth of recorded rhythm tracks on the accompanying CD, you will have the opportunity to put your new skills directly into action. 64 pages.

  • Learn to read music first

    As reviewed by Figbassist75 on 8/15/2009

    This book was a let down for me. I wanted something that taught walking bass lines and what I got was an over my head way too advanced book full of lessons. I've been playing for over ten years and I play all styles of music and trying to work through this book almost brought my development in music to a stand still. You have to know how to read music and this title tries to teach that but only touches on it with one or two pages and they are not as clear in their instruction as they should be. It's okay for those that can read music but stay away from it if you don't.
