Walk Like a Man

Before you actually start to walk, try this here....

This is called playing in '2'. Using roots and fifths, we get 2 bass notes per measure. Be sure to swing, otherwise it will sound like country.

It may help you to swing if you play with a metronome, and set it to click on "2" and "4". Obviously, you will want to pick a slowish tempo, unless you plan to run instead of walk. Note that you can go up or down to the root and fifth.
