Bass lines for common gypsy jazz tunes

Are bass players better at reading bass clef than guitar players are reading any clef? This is a genuine question. If so, maybe this would be a good place to post some stock bass lines for common gypsy-jazz tunes. Maybe more people will be then tempted to pick up a bass and provide some bottom end...

Cheers,
Ando

    Ando,
    Please do post some "standard Gypsy Jazz bass lines."
    They would be a great help to myself and anyone else just starting out in this phrase of jazz bass.
    Thank you.
    Musically yours, bumkneez

    I'd be glad to, bumkneez. If anyone else is reading this thread, post some suggestions about good examples.

    Cheers,
    A

    Here's Louis Vola's first chorus on "Minor Swing" -- 1937, I think.

    Here's Vola, just as Stephane really gets going... Draw your own conclusions.

    Here's Diego Imbert backing Bireli's first chorus on "Gipsy Project & Friends." Nice how he builds up steam in bars 7-8 with a little syncopating push. This rhythm section is moving!

    You're welcome, Shane. Bass parts are fun, aren't they? I'm working on another project at the moment, so I'll post more bass parts next week.

    Cheers,

    :shock: Wow! Ando, How do you include notation on your posts?

    Hi Harry, I used an open-source program called Lilypond:

    http://www.lilypond.org

    Lilypond generates all sorts of file types as output. I think it spat out these as GIF images (I'm too lazy to check!). Then I upload them to a webserver.

    That way, I can just specify them as "images," using the little image button on this site. Voila'.

    Also, I realize I haven't posted any more of these for some weeks. Just too damned busy. But it's a project I'll dip into again. Any requests?

    Cheers,
    Ando
