I "played" with this guitarist/singer last week and I was horrible. All I could play was the root note of the chord changes and my timing sucked! I know I need to spend some more time with a metronome. But the most creative lines I could play were the usual root notes with a couple of octaves and fifths thrown in here and there! I couldn't even figure out how to play "Say it ain't So" by Weezer! He wants me to play guitar and write songs for him because I've been doing that longer and am better at it. But I've always wanted to play bass and I've invested all this time and money in it. I don't wanna just give it up, but I still want to play with this guy. HELP!!!
