    What's the best way to do bass fills (in rock music or in general). Do you guys have any tips? Thanks

    I like to throw in a part of a scale.. not the whole thing just a few notes of one to make it sound cool.

    Pick a note and play parts of a scale of that note until something sounds like it will work then add it in and see how it sounds...

    Works most of the time :)

    All my fills are derived from a pentatonic scale. I find the "square" patterns of the pentatonic scale easier to use in fills.
