I have been playing bass for 3 years. I went to lessons for the first 6 months but my teacher was a self proclaimed "local band hero" and he knew very little music theory. Anyways earlier this week I was sitting in the music room on my free period playing bass. Well a few kids heard me and said we should form a band. So today we decided to have our first offical pratice. We picked 2 cover songs just to break the ice and get things moving Jimi Hendrix Machine Gun and Red Hot Chili Peppers around the world. What I am concerned about is when we create orignal music what do I need to know in order to accomplish this? Thanks for any help!
