The Walk That Bass series of books provide a set of pre-composed walking bass lines over common jazz standard chord progressions for learning, practice and study. Each line occupies a specific range of the fretboard and are all written from an educational perspective. This allows for progressive, step-by-step learning for each of the presented. Volume 1 also contains multiple chapters devoted to functional harmony, chord scales, chord tones and vocabulary development. This is the perfect supplementary text to practice alongside the Simple Steps To Walking Bass course.

    This mini course is an excellent introduction to learning to play a walking bass. The material is clearly presented and gives you a great sense of how good the related full courses are (Chord Tones Essentials, Simple Steps To Walking Bass & Scale Essentials). I’ve completed 4 of Mark’s other courses and they are all well worth the investment. Now you can add this mini course to the list!

    Completing the course is only the beginning. This course lays a great foundation for learning all about walking bass lines.

    Lots of information and great ideas; thank you so much for doing this. It absolutely cannot be beat–especially considering the cost. I look forward to Volume 2. Bill Kappler

    Wow! Just received this and I am simply amazed at the amount of content. Just printed the pdf and I will be taking a trip down to my local printer and have it spiral bound. Read through the first couple of chapters and can’t wait to get started!

    Mark I’ve always admired your work and I truly love this new product but im more of a hands on guy, I prefer to wait until the actual book with a companion disc becomes available, that works best for me, so I hope you’ll get it to market very soon!
