Hello, I'v been playing bass a few months now and i'm still struggling to get to grips with it to a degree. I am originally a Guitar player (Electric/Acoustic) and do still play Acoustic occasionally. But now my attention has turned to Bass guitar out of choice. But there are a few things i struggle with when it comes to bass. Originally i used a plectrum with everything i played due to my background/comfort zone. And people like Lou Barlow-Dino Jr who initially inspired me to pick the bass up in the first place. But from this i feel like i lack in the raw bass sound most bassist have naturally and when i listen to other bassists and they just seem to flow while keeping Sick bass lines. I can only Accomplished this if i play like a guitar/ Strumming and plucking and i almost find myself playing Guitar just on a bass. but the soul reason i picked the bass up in the first place was to be able to keep that funk and groove the bass is so capable of giving.. but i just cant get there... I have gone back to the roots and started learning from step one again.. but now i find myself just jumping from technique to technique. and some days cant even distinguish the bass sound from my guitar playing my band is starting to go places and i'm scared that my actual knowledge of the bass isn't going to be able to keep up with the creativity i have with guitar and almost set me back as a bass player. apologies if this is slightly confusing. but i am just hoping if anyone could give me a few words of advice.. P.s i don't learn tabs.. i play strictly my own stuff and just wondering if this is a slightly bad idea?.. and if learning tabs would benefit me. Thank you. And apologies if this is in the wrong place. i don't usually use forums.
