Lesson 13: Common Chromatic Movements; Practice Tune #4
Because jazz walking bass lines are improvisational in nature, there are obviously countless numbers of ways that you can get through a set of changes. The more developed your ear, of course, the more options that are available to you when you are 'on the spot' during a gig. However, it is important to remember also that you have to walk before you can run (pardon the horrible pun). On the bass, that means we are best served by learning one thing at a time, hopefully placing simpler challenges before the more difficult ones.
