The only way to truly discover a city, they say, is on foot. Taking this to extremes, Mark Mason sets out to walk the entire length of the London Underground - overground - passing every station on the way. In a story packed with historical trivia, personal musings and eavesdropped conversations, Mark learns how to get the best gossip in the City, where to find a pint at 7am, and why the Bank of England won't let you join the M11 northbound at Junction 5. He has an East End cup of tea with the Krays' official biographer, discovers what cabbies mean by 'on the cotton', and meets the Archers star who was the voice of 'Mind the Gap'. Over the course of several hundred miles, Mark contemplates London's contradictions as well as its charms. He gains insights into our fascination with maps and sees how walking changes our view of the world. Above all, in this love letter to a complicated friend, he celebrates the sights, sounds and soul of the greatest city on earth.

The bass has been called "the most important instrument in any band." the bass player must create interesting lines under the chord changes, keep the "time flow" or "pulse" steady, and keep the form of the song together. This book is designed to help bassists create beginning to advanced walking patterns (smooth-sounding lines) that can be used in jazz, blues, R&B, gospel, Latin and country music. By explaining the basics of intervals, chords, and scales the author builds a framework for understanding bass line patterns. Then the book presents one- and two-measure patterns that can be used in playing the blues, rhythm changes, the II-V-I progression, and 20 popular jazz standards. the book is written in standard notation with chord symbols. the CD gives you the opportunity to play with one of the finest rhythm sections around. It is in stereo, with the bass and drums on the left and piano and drums on the right. Since the examples in the book are presented both with sample bass lines and as chord progressions only, you can either follow along with the bass or practice your own lines with the CD as your accompaniment.Also available in Japanese from ATN, Inc.

Basic Walking Bass Lines for Jazz Guitar explores the creation of walking bass lines played over chord sequence using only chord tones. This is the usual path for beginner players who want to start with walking bass before moving to more complex techniques as scalar or chromatic lines. A progressive approach is used to introduce walking bass technique: we begin with lines starting from the root of the chord, then we explore lines starting from chord guide tones (third and seventh) and then we create lines starting from any chord tone. On each step player discovers a new set of lines moving from very mechanical and repetitive examples to more melodic and professional lines. In the first part of this book many exercises on single chord progression are presented, instead in the second part, studied lines are applied to most common jazz progressions.

Intermediate Walking Bass Lines for Jazz Guitar explores the creation of walking bass lines played over chord sequence using scale tones. This is the usual second step for players who want to master walking bass before moving to chromatic lines. A progressive approach is used to introduce walking bass technique: we start with a preliminary section to approach scalar walking bass on a single chord progression. In the second part we present lines related to most common jazz progressions. In our examples a bass line is added above chord (in this case drop2 and drop3 voicing are used) progression. Playing also suggested chord position is a good exercise for solo guitar.
