Bass Runs and Fills

You can download this music as a .pdf from here.

Set 1 below features several bass runs and fills. The capital letter defines the chord which should be played on the second and forth beat of the bar (when you can). The lower case letters are the bass notes to play. Where there is a slash (/) no bass note is played (but a chord should sound).

Don't use all of these structures all the time to avoid too much scribble in the music.

In each case, your ears must be the judge as to whether the pattern fits the music you are playing.
