    I have transcribed some walking bass lines for Jazz standards, and I will upload them in the next few days, starting with "All of Me".

    All of Me

    The .pdf file for this and other standards can be downloaded here:

    I also wrote a little introduction to Walking Bass playing.

    You are welcome. I have backing tracks and transcribed basslines for many Realbook standards, I made them during my college years. I will try to upload some more of them.

    Ok thanks, the word transcribed had thrown me. I've never heard it in the context of notating your own lines. I learn something every day.

    Maybe not 100% sure it´s the best word to use. These are written out Walking Bass lines that are not simplified like a simple exercise but like real jazz players play, hope that explains it.

    By the way, trying to transcribe from players like Chambers or Carter can really improve your Walking Bass skills :)

    Two other basslines are availible:

    "Sun" is an example of playing over the changes of "Solar" by Miles Davis, basically an advanced minor blues progression.

    "You" is my take on "There Will Never Be Another You", lots of key changes, interesting stuff!

  15. Thanks again, liked Sun especially.

    "Solar" is just a really nice piece of music, always fun to play.

    "There will never be another You" is much more complex. If you master this, you will really benefit from it.

  18. Did you use that G natural over E7 (in bars 3, 9, 19) on purpose?
