I've come to accept that I haven't spent nearly enough time transcribing basslines. And, when I have done this I haven't really taken the time to analyze why the bass players made the choices that they made. However, my time is extremely limited. So, what (in your opinion) are going to be the most impactful basslines to transcribe and analyze? I'm looking for things that will teach me how to better approach a set of changes, create new basslines and new ideas. I'm mostly playing rock, blues, soul, and some funk. I find myself stuck either playing root, fifth, octave patterns or walking from chord to chord. I'd like to break out of that box, and pick up some new rythmic ideas. I'm hoping that this approach will help. Any input is appreciated.
