Thank you for the lesson. The chord shapes helped me understand the note interval for different chords. I like the jazz sound.

hello, i go to a special magnet arts high school by audition for bass, one of my specialties is jazz, this man from the thelonius (spelling?) monk institute came to my school and dropped off packets for jazz walking bass lines, in it is a section on autumn leaves, i think i can get the packet in computer format and send it to you if you would like a copy, its extremely helpfull
autumn leaves walking pattern: cycle, cycle, cycle, tritone, alt. cycle, alt. cycle, octave, alt. cycle

Sure man thx, i’d like that

Been having fun with this one….you can also play alternating root/fifth on a large part of the chords – even more fun. You have a great site Marlowe:-)

been playin stuff from tabs for around 6months while tryin to teach myself the theory side of things and just been confusing myself. just watched the vid on ideas for basslines (3rds 5ths etc) and somethin just clicked! now with this progression list, iv got somethin to play around with. thanks for the lesson, really appreciate the time you take to do this

Just thank u to help me to understand a lot of things. Very nice and interesting sequence, have u got some others examples of chords progression ???
Not on video, but “Real book” (most jazz standards) is a good place to start

Marlowe, I have a realy hard time comprehending chord progressions. About all I understand is I-IV-V. How do you know to go from a Cmin7 to an F7, from there to a BbMaj7, and so on. Is it just from experience with playing around and see which chords fit best?
Im not not making it up, its standard chord progressions for many jazz/pop songs – learn the songs – learn the progressions – its a matter of memory first and foremost

great. I have spent some time learning this chord sequence & I recorded it with garageband.
Now I’m playing around with creating some walking basslines over the top…would love to hear some of your walking lines for this & in general.
Im not a jazz player per se, but i guess i could do some walking bass lessons sometime
