You might not be interested in jazz, you might not even like it, but let me tell why you should at least pay attention to it: Much of the foundation for modern music has some roots in jazz. Learning some of the basics can go a long way in helping you perfect your guitar technique.
In this tutorial, I’m going to demonstrate three techniques that are key: 1. Walking the bass, 2. voicing a melody with chords, and 3. Putting those two together to create a walking bass as a contrapuntal tonal and rhythmic element supporting the voiced chords/melody.
One of the advantages of YouTube is you have the ability to slow the video down without change the pitch. So I suggest going to the settings and slowing it down to a speed that allows you to follow along on your guitar.
