Watch the Walking 251 online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from 30 Jazz Guitar Rhythms You MUST Know
In this must know rhythm style, we use a walking bass line while comping chords in the style of Joe Pass and Martin Taylor. We use a 2-5-1 progression using Am7 - D7 - G major progression. We use more of a scalar pattern for the bass instead of the neighboring tone approach. Try experimenting in other keys using this 2-5-1 walking bass line. The 2-5-1 progression is in just about every jazz standard, so it's important to be able to play this in all keys.
