First, sorry if this post is not structured in a more intelligible format or if there was a better sub-forum I should have posted to I am trying to force myself to "master" the bass. Don't take it the wrong the way -- I love playing bass and always have, but it's the learning and theory that I am trying to force upon myself. A couple of years ago (maybe 1? I don't remember) I found Kompoz and I had fun with it. Got a Focusrite and began to noodle around with the songs and come up with bass parts. That was fun and learned a little bit about theory. Life happened; did other things. Tried to go back to it several months ago and got really pissed off that almost everything I looked at were requesting instruments that a) the original already had in it and b) were already submitted months prior and were really solid contributions. It's like people just throw some random track up, request parts on the site and walk away to never be seen again all the while people are actually dedicating time to their initial submission. So today I thought, "it must have gotten better". Went to the site and nothing has changed. Are there any alternatives? Anyone else try that site out? I am not actually looking to submit anything, it was just initially a great place to find some nice new music that was completely bass free. What I have been doing for the last week is loading up Spotify and trying to find songs without bass (usually some form of blues as a lot either has no bass or is really hard to hear). Then attempting to come up with anything before the song ends in hope I can also help train my ear trying to find out what chords are what. Sorry for the long rant. For those that don't jam, gig, etc., and only have your bass, what do you do to learn? My only other thought is looking into doing my own transcriptions.
