This course is meant as an introduction to walking bass. We won’t be going into any complicated theory and walking bass concepts. What you’ll gain are necessary foundations for expanding your knowledge and more importantly - means of cheating your way into walking bass territory. After all, not all of us end up being session musicians or super stars in certain genres. All musicians (even pros), often prefer to take the easy route and learn how to "fake” certain styles. This is what you’ll learn, you’ll learn how to "fake” walking bass type of lines until you are ready for more. I must say, that this can be a lot of fun and a lot of my friends (myself included), never actually feel the need later on to learn specific styles in more depth.

This course, does not rely on any music theory (at least complicated one). This is a problem of many other walking bass courses as those just dig too deep into music theory that it becomes boring. You’ll just need to have a very basic understanding of how to find certain notes on the fretboard (in basic, most
often used positions on the neck). Since walking bass heavly relies on chords, you’ll need to have a basic understanding of chords and root notes, but we cover those topics within the course.
