Sound like a Guitar Player?
So, recently, I've been working with some friends, just noodling around, playing some standards and improv jamming and what not. I'm always told to "Lay down something smooth and solid", but when I do, I get stopped and told to try over. They said I sound like a guitar player playing bass. I do play a little guitar, but I'm a chicken picker, so really, I play the guitar like a bass. Any tips you could give me to break this habit, or help me to realize when I'm doing it, and what a "smooth and Solid" bassline really sounds like? Thanks!
