    Hi John, try Blues Bass by Ed Friedland, its on Hal Leonard and a great place to start. Listens to anything on the Chess label and the gutar work of Stevie Ray Vaughan. Listen to Stevie's guitar work and you'll find some great lines, phrasing, rhythm and tempos to use.

    Here's some good jazz blues play alongs from Aebersold. I have the first three.
    One channel has keys/drums, other channel has bass/drums; so you can cut the bass out and do your own lines.
    Has tips, advice, articles, a little light theory, melodic ideas and chord charts.

    This is free :) and has some blues items if ya scroll down a little
  6. Awsome!! Thanks for all the great suggestions this is just what i was looking for just needed some good ideas.

    I have a blues book you might find helpful. It's called Blues Bass and it's published by Hal Leonard. Ask around about it and see what people think. Feel free to contact me if I can be of any help. Thanks!
