So the group im currently with that has mainly been a cover band has (finally) started to look at original tunes. I'm super pumped and excited because its something i've always wanted to do. I mean who doesn't like creating something thats "theirs"? the first attempt is at a song my guitarist wrote like 4 or 5 years ago i guess. so me and my drummer(who has all the software and such) recorded my part to it last week, the guitarist couldn't make it out that day. personally i was pretty happy with it, and my drummer seemed to dig it as well. its a bit sloppy and theres some specific parts i do want to change. but yea, im kinda proud of it. however when i asked my guitarist what he thought after he heard it, well he's definitely not digging it. he wants multiple parts completely changed. in fact i got the feeling he wants a completely different direction with it. I just wanted to get some feedback from fellow bass players. how do you guys deal with the whole songwriting dynamic in a band? should the person who comes up with the idea have complete veto power, or should everyone write their own parts for their respective instruments if they're able and willing. also take a listen to the attached file if you want, I'd love some honest feedback from you guys.
