From what I hear my two biggest beefs from my bandmates are 1. Sometimes I get to busy with basslines 2. I at times push the tempo Well as far as im concerned problem #1 is an oxymoron. But is it common to push as a bassist and besides a metronome what are some things I can do to or be cautious of? I don't know if I'm pushing all the time or my drummer is eratic? But I do slightly push occationally.
