I've been playing bass for awhile but have just recently started lessons. I've really come to like the blues stuff we play around with, but im wondering if anyone has any advise as to what i should start practicing to be getting toward writting my own bass lines and in general getting better. i want to be able to start up a blues band at my school, but i dont know enough yet. any input would be very much appreciated. as well, i would eventually make the leap to jazz and intend to eventually join a jazz ensemble at my school. any ways, i appreciate the help.
