alright here we go "sigh"...i've been playing for about a year and a half and i'm decent at playing and make up bass lines. however, i'm concerned because i don't know any of the basic musical scales and notes and i just feel like lately that i can't write anything that is good enough. recently my band was writing a new song and i wrote the bass line for the verus and it worked but it just didn't strike me that it was very good. i want to make it better and i think about how all day but i'm stuck. i know there is no magical answer. any advice would help.
