Hey folks.. Just a curious question. I suppose over the years I've always tried to play bass like the guys I love most, but the more I learn about music, the less I play like my bass heroes, and more like myself. (At least I try) At what point does that come for other people? How much should we play our favorite songs over and over and does that make you a better player? I am just wondering if anyone came to a similar realization in their playing. I don't sit there and play other people's bass lines anymore, but at the same time, I cannot deny learning all those bass lines over the years had an impact on my playing. Is it the same for other people?
