The Walking Bass Series
If you are a fan of traditional jazz, blues, or country, chances are you have listened to a lot of songs that feature walking bass lines. Walking bass is one of the most interesting styles to learn because of the unique way in which it intertwines the rhythm and harmony of the tune. But in order to play a functional and traditional-sounding walking line, it helps to have a working knowledge of applied harmony and theory so that you know what notes are appropriate over which chords. The walking bass series gets you started with all of the foundational knowledge you need to start walking confidently!
