I've been bassing for almost a decade and it's finally time to learn this stuff. Most methods I found online got me bored and usually got me thinking 'how will I incorporate this in my playing?!' After a decade of playing, I have quite a few original basslines that I play along to my band's songs but I still don't know when I'm supporting a major chord and when I am supporting a minor third. I tried approaching it by playing along and adding a minor/major 3rd to see which sounds better with the song but I'm having a hard time deciding. Maybe the guitarist is playing power or root-octave chords, I'll have to ask him when he gets back from abroad. Anyhow, how do you guys recognize what chord is being played?
