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 Building Walking Bass Lines 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. 64 pages.

Comments about Hal Leonard Building Walking Bass Lines (Book/CD):
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.
