Walking the strings
Hello, and happy holidays early! I am going to be playing with a keyboard player and drummer some over the holidays, not playing any gigs out, just having a good time, but I would like to function as a bass player while the keyboard player is soloing. Does anyone have any good suggestions on how to go about learning to walk bass lines? We will mostly be playing blues and jazz. Thanks a lot!
The latest issue of Play Guitar Mag devotes an article to walking bass lines. Here is a link to some audio files from that article that might assist you.
