I've been playing bass in a folk-rock band for a couple of years. It's been a great experience for me. They gave me a break even though I was much less experienced than them. Now that I've got some skills, I felt the need to expand my playing into a more rockin' sound. So I hooked up with this new band, which is sort of garage/punk/lo-fi rock. The new drummer is like I used to be, inexperienced, but motivated. We've talked about doing some bass & drum only practices so that we can get really tight. I feel weird suddenly being the "experienced" one, but I want to make this work. I'm looking for advice/suggestions on what kind of exercises/material the two of us could work on. Obviously we have the band's material, but what else? Has anyone out there done this? It seems like a good idea to me. Help?
