: Hi. I am a classical bassist but I would like to learn about jazz and walking bass lines so I can play some jazz with some friends of mine.
: What is the basic pattern to walking? Can someone give me a couple examples in some different key signatures.
Hello Jordan -
There is a link to a web site on developing walking bass lines on my Double Bass Links Page - http://www.gollihur.com/kkbass/basslink.html - you may find that page quite useful.
I believe that Ed Friedlin (writer for Bass Player Magazine) has a book on walking bass.
