Watch the Latin Groove online guitar lesson by Mimi Fox from Flying Solo
In this style of music Roots and Fifths are fundamental to your basic Bass line construction, but they are by no means the end of the story! If you listen closely you'll notice other combinations drawn from the scales as well as passing/chromatic notes, as well as our old stand-by: arpeggios! You'll again notice use of chord substitution which opens up the sound quite a bit. I also use double-stop intervals like 3rds/6ths etc. for a colorful variation on the walking bass lines.
