    That's the drummer's job. You're supposed to play the bass line. Some simple tips on fingerstyle can be found by using the search function. Also, check out the warwick website for some beginner help on fingerstyle, tapping, and slap.
  3. Get a metronome, play with it slow and steady.
  4. No, that's *everybody's* job. A musician without a decent sense of rhythm is not one that other musicians will look forward to playing with.
