Autumn Leaves Walking Bass Line Tutorial
Welcome to this tutorial on Autumn Leaves Bass Lines.
In the intro lessons on walking bass we outline the essential knowledge for constructing simple walking bass lines. We will now apply the concepts to the well-known jazz standard "Autumn Leaves".
We will also introduce rhythmic comping and other stylistic elements in our right hand. Previously, we have just placed the chords on beat 1 which allowed us to focus completely on the left hand bass line. We will now add other dynamics to the right hand chords including: chord duration, anticipation, syncopation and multiple alterations.
Throughout this lesson we will use a mixture of all of the different bass line options so that you can see how to combine and mix them together.
