I know this probably gets posted a lot, but this forum has been phenomenal so far for searching for gear/other questions. Basically I'm gigging very frequently with two different bands in the Denver area, I'm self taught on guitar and bass but I know enough theory to be dangerous. I've never really gotten anything but praise on my writing and playing, and sometimes i'm satisfied, but I'm getting to a point where I feel I need to improve. I always know when I see a bassist better than me playing, and it happens quite a lot. What do you guys do when you feel like you've plateaued? What I usually do is study some theory I'm foggy on or didn't know about previously, but I don't feel like it helps my creativity much. Beyond knowing your scales, chords, harmonies, circle of fourths and fifths, stuff like that I feel like I'm just treading water. I think I need to study some other great bassists and learn to emulate their styles to help me develop my own more... Not looking for a link to a beginners course, just some strategies for furthering myself as an intermediate player. Thanks!
