    go to www.activebass.com and try some of the original riffs by some people there...

    i usually get inspired by some of the riffs... (no i donĀ“t steal them! just make they mine :D )
  5. whenever i need inspiration, i go to the local 'labor ready", work a day for basically no money, then use the stress and fatigue to write. it works!

    Just bang around for a while, until you hear something cool, then work with it. That's what I do.

    If you have a girlfriend, try probing or pinching her in different areas... the notes a womans voice can carry amaze me sometimes... :p

    Believe it or not, I think you should take a step back and REALLY LISTEN to what you like to play. Sit down with no distractions and your favorite music. What do you like about it? How does it make you feel? Good music's about creating a feeling, good or bad. I suspect once you connect with that again, you won't have to work so hard to put sounds together into songs. Try it...it can't hurt!

    You could also try to listen and learn some styles that you haven't tried before. It will put a different perspective on things.
