Watch the Weekly Workout #37 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Gym Weekly Workouts: Vol. 5
With my trusty ES-340 in hand I give you this weeks Weekly Workout: A very cool walking bass line riff courtesy of Tuck Andress. I learned both versions of this two-bar riff from his legendary Hot Licks video of yore. It's a seemingly simple I7-IV7 change in C. Take note: Tuck originally played it in G, but I raised it up a perfect fourth to cut down on the stretching. The goal is to get the bass line to sound separate from the swing eighth upbeat chord stabs while maintaining the overall groove. With some tips from me along with patient practice you too will have this rolling in no time.
Have fun with it!
