Okay so now we're gonna do the walking
bass lines in all 12 keys in the lower
positions, but a little faster.
So now we we're still not
gonna play any fills but
we're gonna make sure we keep that
chord and it'll pop in with the drums.
I'll play the written line
the first time like last time,
I'm gonna improvise a little bit in
different cells the second time.
So watch what I do,
pick up some cells, but
make sure you play this written
line the first time and
I want you to really think about playing
it really strong in the pocket, okay?
Here we go,
bass lines in all 12 keys to the two 5s.
In the low position, no fills.
