Watch the 12 Bar Blues: Walking Bass online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Bass Guitar 5: Styles & Techniques

12 Bar Blues: Walking Bass - Bassline 6 is a video guitar lesson presented by Teymur Phell and is sourced from 30 Groove Master Bass Lines You MUST Know.

Walking bass is one of the classic bass lines, usually played after a couple half time feel choruses. This is a very straightforward part with four notes per bar—all quarter notes moving through the chord changes. It's important to practice this with a metronome going on two and four as well as a regular 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 pattern.

When creating your own walking bass line, try to follow the simple rules we go over in the video, it's really easy once you get your head around it.
