Watch the Silk and Satin online guitar lesson by Andrew Ford from Essentials: Walking Bass Lines

Here we have a bass line inspired by Duke Ellington's Satin Doll.  There are many different versions of this classic song, but this particular one was inspired by a Ray Brown performance. It features a lot of 2-5 patterns, some triplets, implied turnarounds, ghost notes, and walking over the same chord for two bars straight, allowing time to create tension and release.
