Killer Walking Bass is unique. Unlike other books on jazz bass, the authors focus on melody as a key driver in walking. The aim is to help advanced players extend their vocabulary and grow as musicians.
The book consists of a collection melodic walking lines to play. In addition, Killer Walking Bass includes guidance on creating melodic walking lines.
Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.
Danny Ziemann, author and highly regarded instructor at Eastman, writes: “Killer Walking Bass is a great resource for those looking to take their understanding of walking bass to another level!”
Jason Heath, bassist and owner of ContrabassConversations.com says, “The book provides hands-on techniques for extending walking bass technique. It’s highly recommended for the advanced jazz bassist.”
