So how do you guys break down bass line? I'm referring to how the lines work with the chords of the song. For example I know a ton of bass lines, great does me some good in certain applications. When it comes to originals I struggle writing good lines. Good lines that really pull out the essence of the melody. I've got the groove down, just not the knowledge to know what notes will really make it work without being too basic. So lately I've started looking at the lines I know or ones I'm learning and trying to figure out what the bassist is doing in relation to the guitar or keys etc. So how should I be looking at this in order to grow as a player.
