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!
