so i want some input from TB "my experience bank here". I'm starting to play bass with a group that i've been traveling and running sound with for about a year now. while we're christian we play alot of different styles. Before me they used click track for bass and keys. we play stuff from country style southern gospel, one really bluesed up song, praise and worship, and classic rock stuff (the ten year old drummer re-wrote drift away cause he like the beat) ok on to my question i'm supposed to be playing this stuff pretty close to what was on the track and they're gonna still use the track on the songs i can't get as they still need it for the keys and so far i'm only having trouple with two things. 1. slapping on this really funky song. i just gotta practice slapping apparently once you get it right you can't get enough so i'm sure that will come 2. the real problem the country style stuff is i'm sure not hard just hard to find the bass in it. i was told by my uncle who has played for churchs before that alot of country style stuff is just a Root, fifth or Root, fourth following the chord progression. IS THIS TRUE?? I've tried it playing along with the songs from both cd's and it sounds ok (not wrong) but seems kinda.... well lacking. but then again the prais and worship we do isn't that amazing either i put in some walks here and there to improve on the track or it would just be the Root all the way through the songs. we practice tonight so i guess i'll find out how it goes then but i still want some opinions on if that is true and if it's outside my boundary's to add to what they already had??
