Hi guys new here. I find I am the hardest working member of my band and as such I am constantly writing songs from my instrument, the bass. This is all well and good, however, I can't think of bass in the way it ought to be played when I'm composing. Without any contextual melody section I find I am writing for the bass as if it is the lead melody instrument. In the kind of music I want to be playing I'd prefer myself to have a more supportive role rather than the lead. I also feel like some of the rhythm section gets lost when me and my guitarist are matching up riffs too often and I'm too focused on locking up with the guitar and not the drums. Additionally, I don't have a knack for writing rhythmic hits such as the ones on bar 49-60 of this song. I want that kind of understanding of my instrument and it's not coming as naturally as I'd hoped. http://www.songsterr.com/a/wsa/led-zeppelin-nobody-s-fault-but-mine-bass-tab-s11780t2 Does anyone have any advice on what I should do regarding song composure. (should I step aside, let the other members write, and write in the bass after the fact?) Also, how can I improve my ability to write rhythmic hits in interesting places and take more of a bassists role. Thanks!
