I've been listening to classic rock since the 80's and have sort of burnt out on it. I've also had a few lessons recently, but I've had to suspend that because I just don't have enough time to practice properly or regularly between my work schedule and all the projects I have going on. One of the things my instructor was going to have me do was to write out one of the songs my band was playing. I think that's a great idea, but I'd like to get a few suggestions from him and from you guys about some more and different songs to try out. Here's what I'm looking for: The bass shouldn't be buried so deep in the mix that it's really hard to pick out. The bass should be interesting and tasteful without being virtuoso level difficulty. The song should be anything other than classic rock. I don't really care for rap, country or "new country", but I do want to explore. If there are some gems to be found there then that's cool too.
