Fraser talks about 'space' in Bass Player...
since Free had minimal instrumentation (live), the songs were arranged so the guitar played "here"...the bass played "there"...sounds like a thought out attempt to not step into the other guy's sonic space.

I liked Free/Fraser back in the day but did not give them enough study time.
