On talkbass (and outside of it) there are the bassists who are masters of one genre (or two) and bassists who are open to and want to learn about many different, diverse genres of music. To me, music is music, and I'm open to all styles, but everything is categorized into a genre based on certain characteristics. So whoever here is an expert in a certain genre (rock, metal, blues, jazz, reggae, ska, funk, etc.), would you mind sharing how to make a line in a certain style? This would be appreciated, thanks. P.S. Don't get me wrong here, I'm not a bass-noob. I have been playing rock bass for a year now, I just want to be introduced to more styles.
