Watch the Take A Walk online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Bass Guitar 6: Groove Lexicon
Take A Walk - Groove #6 is a video guitar lesson presented by Stu Hamm and is sourced from 50 Pro Bass Grooves You MUST Know.
In our second jazz groove, we are going to construct a bass line using only notes that are the scales of each chord, and attempt to connect them in a linear fashion to give the line a nice, even shape. After you play beat 2, you want to start thinking about what is the best way to get to the root of the next chord by playing a note that is close to it or has a strong resolution, like from a 5th above. You need to be right on the beat here, neither pushing the beat or puling it back, but locking right in with the drummer.
