Ive always dug the groovy walking basslines that I hear liek on movies and stuff, but i could never figure out how to do any of them, im fairly new..

could anyone give me an example or a something?

thanks in advance.

take a scale, preferably a flat one since jazz is mostly in flat keys and just take it a part and play those notes. a common jazz progression is 2,5,1. take the 2nd note of the scale, doodle with it, 5th note, doodle and so on.

No! That's not how it works. It's not just a doodling. Look up the thread I made about walking lines. Or even better it was combined into another thread that I think is still stickied at the top of the page.

Mr. Bales is being a bit modest here, he did a nice thread on this see:

Also, Hal Leonard put out a fairly decent book on this topic by good o' Ed Friedland.

no the notes not the frets. for example in the key of Bb, the 2,5,1 is C,F,Bb. and i know its simple but i figured since hes asking i should keep it simple.

edit: ya gotta start somewhere.
