Justin, hope all is well!
I am having a little difficulty understanding the concept of the walking bass in the blues and if it is alright I would like to ask you some questions to help make my confusion a little easier to understand.  :) Lets say you were playing a basic blues non chunka chunka Rhythm in E (as you did in your lesson http://www.justinguitar.com/en/BC-010-BluesRhythm.php)
Can a walking bass line be played with this? Would you place the walking bass line where the fourth measure of E would have been played? Then when you change to A do you strum one measure of A then take the second measure for the walking bass line?or does the walking bass line have to be constant throughout all the measures like in your "walking easy blues"?
I guess what I am confused about is whether I am supposed to be playing the bass part as well as the rhythm part at the same time or can I place the bass part in only at strategic points of the song; or does that equate to just adding another guitar part?
I hope I made this clear. Thanks for any enlightenment you can give me.

hi quark, hope ur well

hmmm....

not sure I understand exactly...

you can do the walking bass at any point where it sounds good - but usually it is consistent, and not for just a bit of a song... but you chord do it different each time you go round the 12 bar cycle.... 1st time though with chunka, second, with walking bass, third with chords etc...

is that what you mean?

Hi Justin

There must be some kind of mistake in the first line.

The Bb7 chord progressions in the end, the fingerings ain't correct?

Hi Justin,

Firstly just wanted to say that your lessons have been a real inspiration to me, I've been playing for a number of years but have never properly learnt a lot of the fundamental theory of guitar. Thankfully I am now building up my knowledge and really enjoying it all again. Cheers dude.

I have enjoyed learning and studying the walking bass parts you have written but as the other guy mentioned the part in bar 4 (marked Bb7) seems to have some strange fingering which I am struggling with.

Hopefully you can shed some light on it for me?

Thanks

Lee

Please Justin, fix the 4 bar, there´s something wrong in it, either the fingering or the tab.

Big thanks. Enjoying your lessons.

In bar 4 I guess it should be

6x67xx
8x68xx
9x89xx
10x810xx

The fingering is correct then.
