I was wondering if someone could clearly point out the concept behind walking bass or jazz bass. I mean is it on the spot thingy?(i mean be playing with the mind racing around...) Am i supposed to be knowing charts? i have a 5 string but is it adv. to play from 5th pos rather than one coz the highs are ease to get to? Just give me the method or supposed concept of walking bass line. i am doing from ed friendland's book but it explains only tech. or walking lines.
