I have been wanting to get better at palying rock bass because this is the direction I think I want to go in with bass. The only thing is I have been having a hard time comming up with good rock bass lines and figuring out rock bass lines by ear. I was wondering what some of the obvious traits to look for are. I have kind of been struggling with the whole ties thing which I think tends to show up a lot if Im looking at some kind of sheet music or something, both in playing and trying to desipher by ear. Recently when playing reggae I was perfectly able to lock in with the groove but when listening to rock it seems a bit harder to find it. I was just wondering if you guys could give me a few of the rock bassics.
