    I always liked Manic Depression and the Jazz genre as a whole.

    Always loved Paul's bass line in this tune....there' almost no rhyme or reason to it...very improvisational

    There have to be better choices out there but for what I think of as a walking bass line, I'm stuck on "Miss You" by the Stones.

    Ray Price "Crazy Arms"

    Historically a very important bass line. 4/4 walking bass line was not that common before but after Crazy Arms it was almost required or so it has been written.
