If you play guitar on your own or with just a drummer, being able to play walking bass on guitar and throwing some chords in between, is one of the coolest things in jazz. My students ask me about it all the time. So I thought, why not make a tutorial on walking bass lines.

In this jazz guitar lesson you’ll learn how to build your own walking basslines for guitar and add some typical jazz chords in between. So you will become the bass player and the guitar player in one person. Why pay a bass man, theyre divas anyway, lol.

I’ll teach you the two main concepts for walking bass lines on guitar. The first uses chord tones and chromatics. The second one uses scale tones.

I’ll use the A section of the jazz standard Autumn Leaves to demonstrate these walking bass for guitar concepts. If you know how to apply the concepts here, you’ll be able to create your own walking basslines from scratch for any song.

In my walking bass jazz guitar lesson I’ll show everythin note for note, slow and easy.There is a playthrough for each of the examples in the tutorial.

Of course I’ve also made a walking bass for guitar tabs, which you can download from the link up above this info box. From now on walking basslines won’t be a mistery any more. You’ll definatly make a big step forward in your jazz guitar playing with the incorporation of walking bass.

Please let me know waht you want to learn next. Just leave a comment in the comment section below.

    I wish I had found you when I started studying jazz guitar! One of the things I really liked about this lesson is that you sang occasionally along with your playing. I think it should be done more often! Thank you
