So I got a question today about what is harder guitar or bass... I have just thought about a new wrinkle to this question. When I play guitar I have found that with just about any song I want to play I can find the resources to play it just about like the origional every time. However with bass I have found this not to be true. Particularly with Church music that I do it is almost impossible to figure out what the origional bass line is to most songs. Even if I can learn the album bass line it might not always fit with what else the band is doing. So what I have learned to do is get a feel for the song and improv to that feel. I have crappy musical memory so I find it is different almost every time I play. Sometimes I am amazing but unfortunatly I won't remember what I played So this brings me to my question. Do you rehearse and learn specific exact bass lines to songs that you play over and over? Or do play by feel slighty differnt each time?
