Piano Walking Bass: From blues to jazz
Walking bass is an essential element in blues and jazz music. The walking bass hitting a new note on every beat of each bar is a moving force in this kind of music.
However, as a solo pianist it can be tricky to get the left hand going while playing melody, harmony or even a solo in the right hand.
This book will walk you through some of the common walking bass lines starting with easy blues patterns and progressing to more advanced jazz lines.
It will guide you with some simple rules to make your own bass lines and it will bend the rules to make more interesting lines as well.
