Blues Bass Lines

  1. So I've been playing a lot of blues lately, mostly 12 bar, and am looking to learn more blues patterns to play.

    I know quite a few, but right now my 3 favorite are:

    G|--------------------------
    D|----------0--3--0-------- Just straight 8th's or quarter notes
    A|---0--3------------3--0--
    E|-1------------------------

    G|----------------------------
    D|----------1------------1--- 1 &3&4 1 &3&4
    A|------2-3--3------2-3--3--
    E|-1-------------1------------

    G|-----------------------
    D|--------------0--3---- Funky chicken riff
    A|----0--1--3-----------
    E|-1---------------------


    Anyways, that being said, I just thought I'd see if my fellow TBers had any other cool lines I could steal...

    I started transcribing Jerry Jemmott's bassline off of "No Good" from the "Completely Well" album. A neat walking blues in D:
