Dear Michael and Steve: My friend and I are attempting to put a band together with both of us playing bass. He's going to play conventional bass (EADG) and I'm going to play tenor (ADGC). We jammed a bit yesterday, but ran into a problem: We're both thinking like bass players when it comes to composition. What we need to do is figure out how to "play off" each other and how to add melody to the song. We don't have a guitarist, but we MAY in the future. We think this will be a cool project and we both know this is gonna take time to get right so there's no pressure. Neither of us is sure how to proceed cause neither of us has done this before. What suggestions/advice would you guys offer? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
