Hi, this is my first post. I used to play the guitar in my old band, but I recently switched to the bass and I can't get enough of it. I've only been playing seriously for about 6 months and I was wondering if more experienced bassists here could shed some light on what I'm going through. I never felt comfortable as a guitarist, but the bass fits like a glove. I long to groove groove groove, but I still find myself slipping into bussier forms of playing at times (no doubt a consequence of my guitar playing). A friend of mine always says that I'm a guitar player on bass, and I hate it, I don't want to sound like a guitarist on bass. Has anyone here gone through something like this? I'm also greatly interested to hear about your own experiences and little realizations regarding the role of the bass and the way to approach it. Any feedback on any of these issues is greatly appreciated!
