    I AM TRYING TO FIND SOUND CLIPS OR TABS FOR PLAYING STANDARD BLUES /JAZZ BLUES PROGRESSIONS THAT ARE A LITTLE MORE ADVANCED ...SOPHISTICATED. NOT TOO FAR OUT BUT BEYOND THE BASICS.

    ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS OR KNOW OF ANY WEBSITES. ACTIVE BASS HAS SOME BUT IT DOESN'T SEEM TO BE WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR...

    THANKS

    You'll need a basic (at least) understanding of chord theory to play this stuff. Tabs will not help you, in fact they will hinder you. Check out some of the very good theory articles on this site, and then maybe start with Ed Friedland's "Building Walking Basslines", or another such book.

    Yeah, crikey, Mingus does blues alright :)

    Building walking basslines is a good startpoint in itself actually, it starts from the real basics and explains realy well. the accompanying cd has mountains of material on it as well.

    but it's not all blues, there's a lot of typical jazz progressions on there as well.

    What you should be concerned with first and foremost is locating the 'Caps Lock' key on your keyboard.
