ive been playing bass for 6 years..and im afraid im not very good. i dont know scales, cant play interesting things besides straight forward progressions and power chords. im in an indie rock band and id like to play more interesting things. i think eben from saves the day is the best bass player around right now. i also dig jaco (cant even get close to him). i wanna get better and develop my own style...but i cant get very creative...i wanna play bass better and feel like i have more control over the bass. can anyone help me with exercises to get better...i cant read music, i know very little to no theory at all, and i dont have a real lot of time to practice everyday, so i cant get too in depth with theory...what can i do so i can get out of my rut, and start playing like i should be playing?
