Walking Bass Line – Blues in F

Although the upright bass is different from the harmonica in many aspects we can learn a bunch from studying its role in a jazz band. Most of the time the bassist will play walking bass lines that outlines harmony through melody. He will create his lines using chord tones and notes in the scale related to that chord. Let’s practice playing walking bass lines on the harmonica at a medium tempo. Try locking in with the drums and make it swing!
