  1. Lately i have not been challenged by bass(i am not being cocky.), and it might just be because of the music i listen to. CAn someone recommend some artists or songs that i should learn songs by. Songs with a nice pocket, and easy improv. Or songs that have a set bassline, either way.thanks.

    Okay, now let's extract a couple of items out of your request:

    1) Lately i have not been challenged by bass

    2) Songs with a nice pocket, and easy improv.

    3) Or songs that have a set bassline

    As far as I can see, the problem is that you are not challenging yourself. If you want a challenge, teach yourself to read notation.

    Why not got to a Tower records or Borders and spend some time at the listening stations, in particular, listen to things that you don't normally listen to. Oh, and take a crack at some melodies written in standard notation.

    What do you do right now with bass? Are you practicing, working on becoming a musician, or do you simply learn a couple of songs you like, and that's it? The goal and challenge of becoming a musician, in every sense of the word, is a lifelong journey, sure to present you with enough challenges and motivitation that you would not be bored or searching for more, not within a thousand lifetimes.
