Can You Walk the Talk?
Walking bass comping is fun. Especially in a duo with two guitars, comping with bass lines thrown in can sound very groovy. You can do it with a pick. Or you just use your fingers. I kind of prefer playing like this in fingerstyle but the downside is that I need long fingernails to do that. And I don't like having those at all. So often the pick comes in. Here's a few older vids of me in that particular comping style. All fingerstyle. They were all played on a guitar I no longer own. A 1951 Gibson ES 125. The first two blues have a fast and slow version.
