I have seen a lot of posts lately with bassist asking for help getting into playing jazz. 

So I have made this lesson to give you a load of advice on just this. I talk about standards (jazz songs) to listen to, what II-V-I’s and turnarounds are, and how to start approaching walking on them. I ask point you in the direction of some good resources for jazz beginners. 

Please give me your feedback under the video as I am aiming to do some follow-up lessons and would like to know what particular areas of jazz you would like to work on. Also please like and share. 

I hope you find this useful.

      Learn how to use the Nashville Number System. It’s a great way to write and communicate chord sequences, making transposing easier too. 
      I explain all about this system and how to understand the way major and relative minor keys are related. 
      Full video over at Greg’s Bass Shed on YouTube, or on my website.

      Here is a 12-Bar Blues Backing Track in A - minus Bass. 
      It’s has a medium swing tempo, so perfect for you to practice your walking bass lines to. 
      I have played my own walking line for a few chorus to give you an idea of what to play.  You can download the PDF (with Tab) of my bass line, plus the 12-Bar chord sequence, by clicking the link in the video description. 
      Let me know how you get on,  or if you would like more backing tracks in different keys or styles.

      ‘Learn Ten Amazing Bass Lines’ - new video from Greg’s Bass Shed. 
      These are all funky classics from a similar era, that I have regularly played over the last 25 years. There is some Stevie, Michael Jackson, James Brown, Chic, and more.  
      This is the first in a series of video, so let me know your favourite era, or style and I will include those in future videos. 
      You can download a free PDF (also with Tab if you need it), by clicking the link in the video description. 
      I’d love to hear how you get on.

      String names and tuning 
      Left hand technique 
      Right hand technique 
      Starting To Read Music
