I'm using G-Cadd9 with some cool bass line action. It's similar to the alt bass country pattern, but it has more energy and movement to it. In addition to a walking bass line we'll also incorporate a hammer-on into the pattern.

Try this with different chords and find interesting ways to connect chords with the bass notes as we did in this one. Also see where you can add hammer-ons.
