Hey, So Im in a great threepice original rock/metal band. The all three of us have been inspired and hugley influenced by different bands and I feel like I am not so good at playing bass, and are probably the weakest link in the band when it comes to my instrument. I have played for 8 years, I feel like I have reached a platau in my skill level. I can come up with simple ideas for a riff thats good sometimes, I also plays tight rythm with the drummer. When we make songs, I usually follow the guitar alot, but I really want to be better at having my own basslines underneath.. Its like I don't know which scales or modulations even triads fits to a riff. The last months, I have noticed that when I sit and play at home I have gotten alittle better, but not much. How do can I practice to get better at this? What do you do? How can I get out of my habits of playing, and just play it safe, following the guitar...? We even released an album in 2019, and are onto our next album right now! Plus gigging, so I feel like I need to step it up. Cheers!
