    I teach middle school, and will start a bass class this week. I have several books to use, and one that describes walking bass patterns, but I would like to play examples of popular (60's until now) that are basically the same. Here are (I hope I did it right!) the shortened patterns:

    G _ _ _ _ _ _ 2 5 2 _ _ _ _ _ _
    D _ _ 2 5 2 3 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    A _ 3 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 2 5 _ 3 _
    E _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 3 _ _ 3 _ _


    G _ _ _ _ _ _ 5 3 _ _ _ 7 5 _ _ _5 3 _ _ _ _
    D _ _ 5 3 _ _ _ _ 5 _ _ _ _ 7 _ _ __5 _ 5 3 _
    A _ _ _ _ 5 3 _ _ _ _ 5 _ _ _ _ 3 _ _ _ _ _ _5 _
    E _ 3 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 3 _ _ 3 _ _ _3 _

    The first is just a 1 -3 -5 of the chord, and the second is used often, but I am not knowledgeable of popular songs or groups; I played in orchestras all this time. I would like to say, "Here's a tab and recording of 3 Doors Down or a System of a Down, or something like that, that uses this basic pattern with embellishments."

    Suggestions?
    Thanks! Mark
