So now, let's put it all together in an example in D major. The chord progession here is:
  • D - A/C# - C - G/B - Am - G - D/F# - Em
Note how the bass completely descends, never moving more than 2 frets from chord to chord. This type of bass movement works especially well in solo guitar situations, because the listener can really hear your bass line, as opposed to a band situation, where the perceived bass line is more dependent on what the bass player is doing.
