About melodic blues basslines
Here we discuss blues bassline options in more depth by adding scale and chromatic notes. This will give your lines a lot of harmonic and melodic interest. These concepts are valid for other chord progressions, so feel free to apply them while you are learning the jazz standard repertoire.
To support this free lesson, there is accompanying sheet music and playalong track.
