The best way to learn how to play jazz is to learn how to play songs. In this edition of Jeff Denson?s Jazz Bass Fake Book, you'll learn to navigate the harmony and the grooves for 30 of the most popular jazz standard progressions.
eff will demonstrate how to approach crafting bass parts for 30 of the most popular jazz standards. He will vary the bass grooves and demonstrate how to insert simple fills across multiple choruses, just like he would on a gig.
?We?ll play through 30 different commonly called jazz standards using both two-feel and walking lines, as well as some Bossa grooves. With many of these standards, I?ll start out by playing a two-feel and then go into a walking bass line. One thing I'd like you to think about is that a two-feel is not only something to be played underneath the melody (or "head") of a tune and then is quickly abandoned when the solos start.
Two-feels can be great to play for longer periods of time, or even for entire tunes. Enjoy finding how to lock them in with the drums and experiment with when to tastefully add fills. Some of these fills can be filling in the missing beats with quarter notes, while some can be more syncopated rhythmic figures.
Each study is charted out illustrating the exact basslines I play throughout the play along. Reference the charts and play along with me to practice and improve your jazz bass skills!?
Jeff will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches along the way. You?ll get standard notation and tabs for all of the performance studies. Plus, you?ll be able to use TrueFire?s learning tools to sync the tab and notation to the video lesson.
You can also loop or slow down the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace. All of the backing tracks are included to work with on your own as well.
Grab your bass and let's dig in with Jeff Denson!
