Hi, I've played guitar for 20 years and would like to develop a modicum of talent on the bass. I am a "shredder", have a good grasp on theory and what is involved in developing sound technique with guitar. Over the years, my guitar playing has gravitated towards arpeggio/chord shapes. Most of my licks and improvisation are based around chord shapes or intervals. Because a guitar neck is small, I have alot of freedom to play intervals in differnt ways. For instance, I can stretch across 5 frets to play a major 3rd. On a bass this would be impossible for me without lateral movement. I would need to play it across two strings. I was wondering, while playing bass, are most basslines constructed around arpeggio/chord shapes? Can someone point me to a good refernce that shows the correct way to "organize" ones technique on the bass? I plan to learn by doing -- just playing along with songs and using the sequencer to slow down and study difficult parts, I just want to make sure I am choosing the correct movement. Thanks!
