Watch the Bass & Drums Play-along 2 online guitar lesson by Ben Lacy from Two-Hand Groove Guitar

Let's simplify the jazz swing bass a bit to concentrate on getting the hands to work together. Less duty for the left hand let's focus on the right hand percussion. I'll take out those double notes.

We'll add in some percussion. The mandatory backbeat is on 2 and 4, and a subtle hi-hat brush around the A string. Hitting the backbeat harder to stand out, and keeping the hi-hat soft really makes it swing.
