Watch the 1-4-5-4 Jazz #1 online guitar lesson by Andrew Ford from Bass Groove Survival Guide

Here we have a chordal walking bass line. A line that only uses the notes of the chord. In this example each new bar begins with the root of the chord and clearly outlines the notes of the chord. Again, if you are unfamiliar with some of these chords and their corresponding scales there are many resources available that will explain those relationships, we will not cover that in this course.
