Walking bass and chords guitar lesson – Solar

One of the nicest ways to comp in a duo setting is to play walking bass and chords at the same time. In this lesson I am going to go over a 2 chorus example on the song solar and demonstrate how you can construct bass lines, make some rhythmical variations and use passing chords and leading notes.

  1. Excellent!

    I really thought about landing chords on the one creating an illusion of resolution. I always felt it just killed the momentum. But the spots where I do it ARE usually moments of resolution!

    Eye-opening

  2. Thank you for this superbe Christmas gift before the date!

  3. nice lesson

  5. This is awesome! Thanks.

    Quick note — the 24th bar shows an A natural that I think should be a G natural, correct?
