This is a very novice question but I've come the point in my playing that I've got a bass and setup I love and I can play most stuff thrown at me but one thing I need to get is how you work out a bass line for a song when covering it? The temptation is used to tabs, but more often than not, they are not available. For example, I'm trying to do look at Life During Wartime by Talking Heads. I believe the chords are Am, C and E - where does one go from here? How do you know what to play (I'm sure this is a music theory question ) Sorry for such a newbee thing, I'm sure that it has been asked many times before!
