The Bass has been called the most important instrument in any band.

By explaining the basics of intervals, chords, and scales the author builds a framework for understanding bass line patterns.This book presents one- and two-measure patterns that can be used in playing the blues, rhythm changes, the II-V-I progression, and 20 popular jazz standards.Walking Jazz Lines For Bass is written in standard notation with chord symbols.

This is a Bass Line Bible!Actual Customer Testimonial - I want to thank you for your book The Bottom Line. As a late-middle-aged novice bassist (of sorts), I´m delighted by your choce of material and your presentation of it. You´ve confirmed many things I´ve long suspected but could not find good information regarding, including forward motion, the importance of 3rds and 7ths, the use of fingerboard patterns, and many more. And you´ve raised and explained many more things I hadn´t thought about, such as thinking of jazz in 12/8 time, the ride cymbal, and tipping in two-beat. I own dozens of jazz and bass music books, but this one book and its CD have brought more together for me than any of them. It´s a joy just to sit and read it, even when my bass is miles away. Again, thanks very much for this truly great work. -- Jack Clark (Idyllwild, California)
(2002 ´CrossCut´) (57:18/10) Carl Weathersby ist eine Persönlickeit. Von furchteinflössender Statur repräsentiert er eine jüngere Generation im urbanen Blues Chicagos. Sein Stil kommt nicht von der Musik der Väter und Großväter. Sein Blues ist modern. Er liebt den rockenden Blues eines Luther Allison gleichermaßen wie den Soulgesang von Otis Clay. Weathersby besitzt das seltene Gespür für das gewisse Etwas. Ständig feilt er an seinem perönlichen Stil, einer Mischung aus knochenharten Blues-Elementen mit schreiender Gitarre und gefühlvollen Soulballaden. Diese Mischung prägt auch sein erstes Livealbum, aufgenommen im November 2002 beim Lucerne Blues Festival in der Schweiz. Getrieben von einem mächtigen Trio präsentiert Weathersby die Bandbreite seines Blues, von hart-krachend bis leise-weinend. Ein emotionales und dennoch kompromisslos-vorwärtspreschendes Album / Carl Weathersby hails from Chicago. His blues are modern. He´s not reproducing the blues of his ancestors. Like Luther Allison, he combines hard rocking blues and soulful vocals and arrangements. His blues are tuff, and his voice sounds so sweet. Carl is a master. He ranks amongst the best guitar players of today. His style is intensive, powerful and loud-screaming. It´s the unique combination of blues/rock and soul that makes his music so special. Supported by a great hard-working trio, Carl will take you on a trip through the modern styles of blues, not only in Chicago. CARL WEATHERSBY - gtr/voc, PAUL HENDRICKS - gtr, CALVIN ´SKIP´ GASKIN - bass, LEON SMITH - drums. Special guests: BILLY BRANCH - hca/voc, OTIS CLAY - voc.
Media Type : BookLevel : BeginningMusical Genre : AllNumber of pages : 112This book is designed to help guide a beginning music theory dialogue between instructor and student in private one-on-one lessons. Six areas of beginning music theory are covered. The major scale, the natural minor scale, intervals, triads, seventh chords and harmonized major and minor scales. Fingerings, intervallic structures and note names are also diagrammed in each chapter. It is highly recommended that this book is used in the course of study with a professional bass instructor, though many players have found the book to be useful in self-study. A good bass teacher will help explain and demonstrate theory concepts in a live setting and also shed additional light in terms of alternate fingerings, ear training and gaining full technical mastery of theory concepts across the entire fingerboard
