    I'm probably going to be doing a bit of a Drum & Bass jam as a starter act at a music event in my area. I was just planning on working in bits and bobs, some recognisable bassline bits (all the popular stuff like Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Sinatra, Ian Drury, Van Morrison etc) and some free form funky bits.

    My worry is keeping it solid and dancey without becoming overly repetitive and boring.

    Anybody got any additional recommendations or clips of them doing something similar?
  2. maybe try a few effects to change the sound a little?

    i find that the bassist of a bass and drum duet seems to use a few effects in many of their songs...

    They actually are repetitive... so maybe don't. But they keep a really good feel the whole way through.

    Don't do too many covers, that would be a bit weird. People would miss the guitars/keys/whatever. I'd mostly stick with originals.

    Try multiple effects/amps... maybe loop some stuff. Go crazy.
