Become a one man Gypsy jazz rhythm section by learning the Walking Bass and Chords technique of accompaniment. This lesson demonstrates how Django used a combination of walking bass lines and chords to create the illusion of an entire rhythm section on just one guitar. 8 notated and MP3 audio examples are included. A full Gypsy style Walking Bass and Chords arrangement of the popular jazz standard All of Me is included. 8 pages of text (from my Gypsy Jazz column in Just Jazz Guitar May, 2005).
A very nice lesson. I'd seen bits and pieces of walking lines before and been shown a few by other players, but this lesson pulls it all together on one song that I play regularly (All of Me). I've found it very easy to work out similar lines for other tunes using the information in this lesson, which really adds some interest when playing in a duo. Very happy, and just a few dollars.
