Hi Guys,

Scroll to 1:34 for the start of the lesson. Here we discuss more in depth Blues Bassline options 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.
