Watch the 1-5-6-4 Jazz Groove online guitar lesson by Andrew Ford from Bass Groove Survival Guide

This is another straight ahead swing groove where we can focus again on solid walking bass concepts. Remember, we can use the notes in the chord, the notes in the scale of the chord, or a combination of those two. You can also use non-chordal chromatic notes to construct your lines. Try if possible and connect the chord changes with a half or whole step interval for smooth transitions chord to chord.
