hey guys, i'm the drummer/noise maker in a band with a bass player friend of mine. we recently finished an album and i'm looking to expand our sound now that he has some more sounds to choose from(95% of the album was only the solo setting on his digitech multi pedal). the problem is he's basically a rock/blues bassist, being very heavily influenced by the doors and only getting as far out at them crooked vultures or queens of the stone age. i've been trying to explain how to approach the experimental music we're trying to create by having him listen to CAN NEU! this heat and so on but he hasn't really gotten into it and i'm having a hard time explaining it so he can understand. i've tried explaining that you don't necessarily play "riffs" but more textures and moods and it doesn't have to be pretty, it can be ugly but he always seems to fall back on the "traditional" bass player role where he plays a riff or locks in with my bass drum. any ideas on how to make this easier to get across?
