    We were inventing a song, and we got to a part where we needed a new riff but nothing came out. So I started tapping something and the drummer came along and it sounded cool. But still, the guitars wanted to add something to my solo, so they tried and tried but nothing sounded good, so they finally gave up and said, why don’t we leave it a solo, and I was like yessssssss in your face ( im just kidding)

    I feel so good!!!

    Recently, my band agreed to remove the part where I solo. I was excited. Just goes to show, they're an understanding group of cats after all.
     
  9. And i thought it was just me that didn't like solo-ing............

    I've gotten a bass solo or two in jazz band, but I didn't like doing it because we didn't have any sort of lead ins or anything. Suddenly it was band stops and I play a bass solo...just felt wierd to me. Sometimes I do interludes(on top of the music) in church mainly because we don't have a guitarist anymore that can solo(we lost 2 guitarist, ones only on a hiatus, but the other is gone permeantly)...our pianist sometimes does it, but not often because he's usually doing rhytym section type playing.
     
  11. ya, convincing guitar players to let you solo is sometimes a challenge, but i've got a solo now. only problem is its a pulling teeth style solo, the song is just a bass solo, its not incorporated. all in good time... but for all you newbie bassist, going crazy on a bass ISNT a solo, its noise. making in key solos can be beautiful.

    Nope, I don't like it either. But, shhh, don't tell Durrl, he'll think it's because you have a complex!
