Walking Bass Line (ii – V – I)

This is the first lesson of the Piano Shorties series. We learn a really cool walking bass line that you can use under a 2-5-1. I go over it in the key of Bb major.

You can do so much with this bass line including accompanying other people by adding in a few comping chords over the top, or even accompany yourself by taking a solo whilst keeping that walking bass line going in your left hand. You could also mix and match by comping a few chords and playing a few nice jazz licks here and there.

This is a great introduction for anyone looking to get into jazz and is really fun to play too!
