This is a question about composition and instrumentation technique rather than bass playing technique. If this is not the right forum, my apologies. I'm going into the studio for in a few weeks to lay down some of my bass compositions, but since a lot of the stuff I've written outside of a band context there are parts where I'm arpeggiating, chording and soloing and so consequently the groove is dropped. I'm looking for ideas, examples and inspiration for when I start to have other musicians come in and flesh things out, so I'll know how to convey what I'm wanting from them. I'll be going in several directions with genres. ska, country, classical, folk, electronic, ya know.... rock, but bass-oriented.
