Check out the youtube tutorial for this lesson here

One of my favorite piano skill is to play the walking bass while I am improvising. Why?

  • It helps me to create a ‘full jazz band’ effect
  • It helps stabilize my groove
  • It helps me to add more space to my improvisation.
  • It sounds awesome.

It is not an easy skill, but today, I want to provide you a smart, step by step practice plan to master this skill in a fun way.

    Thank you so very much David for providing musicians like me the opportunity to learn more and grow on piano skills with easy to understand lessons and methods!

    I play trombone and like to be able to find my way on the piano as I firmly believe it helps with my musical senses from theory to just plain playing.
