Hi, in about three weeks I'm gonna start attending a music school, I've been playing bass for 4 years and I knows Lots of funk and pop, but I know no jazz "standards", I figured I that would come in handy on jams and such, but I don't know where to start. I know the principles (and can play them) behind walking and chords, only I don't know any tunes. I have checked my Real book, but I don't know where to start.
So, if any of you guys could name some standards, say 10 or 15, that a musician just HAVE to know, I'm of to woodshed right away. I'd appreciate it. Peace, Brian
