Hello fellow bass players around the globe. I'm sorry if this thread has been up before, I'm just quite pissed to search right now. Thing is I've got this riff in my head all day, trying to 'hum' it, sing it, tab it down a few times, sitting with my bass trying to get it down. NOTHING works, it sounds hilarious! So my question to you is: How do you 'build' your basslines if you're not just following the guitar that is Any techniques I should know of? Or is it all about getting inspired from your favorite bands? Time to share some thoughts! Thanks.
