My guitarist has come up with the intro, to what will most probably end up being a punk-worship song (what? you can mix the two together!), played on a steel string acoustic: All of the notes are quarter notes, and the line is played twice. Now I'm relatively new to this (Bass Playing) and don't have a lot of tools to work with, but how do I get out of using whole note root notes? when I try anything other than roots it just sounds wrong because all he's doing is playing quarters (with no drums by the way.) and anything I do sounds 'incorrect'. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance, -Bernard.
