What are some specific songs with fun to play Walking bass lines?
"I Know a Little" By Lynrd Skynrd.
Moondance by Van Morrison
Anyone else have a recommendation?
Not sure exactly if I'd call it walking but very jazzy and fun to play is "Edge of the World" by Faith No More:
...and then there's that jazz stuff.
did a lot of walking while playing in jazz band in high school which covered not only jazz but got into some big band numbers as well. Route 66 and swing swing swing were my favorites . I still play them from time to time twenty years later.
I love FNM! Great idea.
Route 66 and Swing, Swing, Swing. Check. Don't think I've heard that 1st one. Definitely will listen to it.
"Wicked Messenger" by Bob Dylan.
Crazy little thing called love
Pride and Joy as performed by SRV has a great walking quarter note feel. Lots of old Rock and Roll from the 50's. There's a Louis Jordan compilation album called Rock and Roll that has some really classic walking bass patterns, it's Jump music, not exactly jazz. Really fun stuff, great band.
I swear I did not see this before I posted another SRV suggestion, talkbass telepathy...
The vast majority of what I played at last night's gig was walking lines.
"Fly Me To The Moon", "Everyday I Have The Blues", "Anytime", "Rt.66", "Beyond The Sea" and "Autumn Leaves" are favorites of mine.
Pretty much anything in "The Real Book" is a good candidate for a walking line.
Indeed. Here's another one; it's jazz but hey, it's the blues, which, in my opinion, is what every r&r bass player should be able to play with ease.
Zanzibar by Billy Joel
