Hey everybody!

I started this thread to try to help you all become better bassists!
I have a degree in jazz performance and i've played many styles of music including:
Rock, Blues, Funk, Metal, Soul, R n' B, Pop, Folk, and much more!
I also know alot of the “tricks” that you guys might be looking for!
If you have any technical, stylistic questions,
this is the place to ask em!

Can you recommend some good jazz/blues bass lines? With few exceptions the ones I listen to are walking basslines.
Any tips on learning to solo would be helpful

First thing you want to do is become very familiar with ALL the notes on the bass.
You're gonna wanna use multiple octave scales and arpeggios so you're not stuck in one spot.
You're also gonna wanna know how to use intervals to mix up the scales.
(this will make them sound less like scales)
here are a couple tabs:

when i get some time i'll work on something more specific.
(dealing with target notes, melodic cells and phrasing)

for now…

A while back I made a tab dealing with walking bass lines:

http://www.bigbasstabs.com/chick_corea_bass_tabs/got_a_match_changes.html

I also made a tab on playing over a blues:

If either of these don't do it for ya,
just lemme know!
