    listen to them, and figure out how the bass contributes to the song (more than likely, some derivation of root-fifth-x-root). I assume you're playing with guitar players too... talk to them, and figure out what key the songs are in if you can't do it by ear, and then come up with your own bass lines. As long as you're in tune and in key, the audience isn't going to call you on playing the wrong bass line... come up with your own, and have fun with it. :bassist:
