Rule for playing Bass in Kirtan, Indian music
What guidelines can anyone offer for playing bass guitar in a Kirtan setting. There are the loose rules for bass playing in western music based on our time signatures, but so far can't find anything for playing bass in any Indian music groups.
My initial thought is to work with the tabla or mrdangam player. Would I stay out of the way of one of the drummers hands, and accent another? Am I close?
I found my Solkathu book and started at the beginning.
Any advice or comments?
