Walking lines......

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by paul_mccartney, Feb 12, 2002.

  1. Does anyone know if there are any decent guides for teaching yourself to play walking lines on the net? What about books?

    I'm talkin reading them off a chart here, ya know, the whole shebang. I can walk a 1-4-5 twelve-bar blues and a 2-5-1, but thassabout it.

    Thanks in advance....

    I've never been all that into videos/books... mainly because i'm too poor.:(

    One good thing to do would be to listen to lots of jazz/blues/whatever music you wanna walk to. Try to see some local bands live if you can. I like to just listen to my local jazz station, figure out the progression, then play my own line by dropping the bass on my stereo. At anyrate try to play with someone/thing. Practice makes perfect!;)

    :D GOOD LUCK!!:D
