    You got it pretty much right there. Being able to think on your feet, writing songs, being able to play well also.
     
  3. A good musician knows his instrument better than he knows his friends or family. That person is able to communicate his deepest ideas and emotions through his music. At the same that person stretches the boundaries of the instrument by being physically and mentally concerned with how music is created on his instrument. A good bassist should have very developed physically abilities aswell as the mental ability to be creative and take the bass into a new realm of music. I am not a good bassist by these standards, but these are the standards I strive for.
