    I play different types of music. I started playing bluegrass, country, gospel, Rock N Roll. My biggest problem was being creative. I am pretty basic. I play weekly at church but sometimes I wish I could be creative on certain songs. I also am trying to learn some Motown. (Jamerson) I have a decent ear and I am trying to improve on my music reading which is bad. One of the things that I would like to do is create bass lines on songs that I currently play. Are there any good books on this. ANy advice thanks.
