    Hello everyone,

    I am an aspiring jazz pianist and I need a book that teaches how to build bass lines. We play gospel/jazz stuff. This is an example of a fast gospel bassline: C-Db-D-Eb-F-Gb-G-Ab This is in the key of Ab. How do you guys build basslines for smooth jazz and fast beat songs.

    thanks

    Sorry, I had to!

    Although, there are several types in the series. Building rock basslines, building walking basslines, etc. You may find something to suit you.
