Watch the Lesson 14 online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from Fingerstyle Blues Handbook 1

This lesson includes a kind of bass line lifted from 1930s small-group jazz recordings by the Benny Goodman Sextet and others. The bass line is walking, but you only change notes every other beat, which creates a sense of motion without moving so quickly that your hands can't keep up. Whenever you need ideas for what to do with your thumb, check out bass players, from whatever styles of music you like. They know better than anyone else what sounds hip on the low end. >> Reference Source: Benny Goodman (http://www.riverwalk.org/proglist/showpromo/goodman_sextet.htm)
