Linear Bass Motion

Linear bass motion (or rather bass lines with strong melodic quality/voice leading) in general feel very attractive to the ear. Their power is actually strong enough to make even the strangest chord progressions on top of that plausible to our ear.

One composition technique that sometimes is being used is writing a melodically interesting (and of course fitting) bass line to an existing melody and later harmonize that bass line as opposed to “traditionally” finding chords to a melody.
