Three forms common to the jazz idiom are used to explore this method; the Blues, Minor Blues and Rhythm Changes. A detailed explanation of the components of building a bass line note by note is included as well as an explanation of the theory behind basic reharmonization. This book also contains a section on the proper scale to use for each chord, with all chord types including available tensions and avoid notes.
