Besides my synth pop band where I play bass, I also sing and play acoustic guitar and kick/snare stompboxes in a guitar/uke duo. Often my guitar takes the role of a piccolo bass, and here I find constructing bass parts more challenging than on a regular bass guitar, because sometimes I stumble into unpleasant intervals with the vocal line (e.g. I mean to sing a b9 during a D7 chord, but can only sing it as a b2, so cannot play a D here). Do you often find yourselves "composing around" vocals and other instruments? Do you sometimes ignore these conflicts, considering them transient?
