Part IV consists of theory for the bassists, chord construction, relating chord symbols and numbers, and the harmonized major, natural, harmonic, and ascending (jazz) melodic minor scales. Diagrams of 26 chords with the transposition charts using G and C fingerings are included. Each progression covers many playing styles encountered by the modern bassist, including: walking, 2-beat, syncopated rhythms(funk), Latin, bebop changes, pop-rock, blues, traditional blues, deadened-string technique, funk playing plus full chord progressions within tunes.

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)
The Bass has been called the most important instrument in any band. The Bass player must create interesting lines under the chord changes, keep the time flow or pulse steady, and keep the form of the song together.Walking Jazz Lines For Bass is designed to help bassists create beginning to advanced walking patterns (smooth-sounding lines) that can be used in jazz, blues, R&B, gospel, Latin and country music. 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. The audio gives you the opportunity to play with one of the finest rhythm sections around. It is in stereo, with the bass and drums on the left and Piano and Drums on the right.
