What is it? I have played guitar for about 20 years and have absolutely no problem soloing over any blues tune. I love the blues and 90% of the time it is what I play. I have been playing bass now for about 5 years and now consider it my primary instrument. But I still can't figure out what a solo should sound like on a bass! All I keep putting out is guitar licks! To be honest by biggest hangup is not having someone hold down the groove while I solo. When I play guitar I play off of everyone else as much as I play off of myself. Every time I have been given a solo spot as a bass player everyone drops out but me. Is this normal? How do I construct a bass sounding bass solo as opposed to an ex-guitar player sounding bass solo. Or am I stressing over nothing?
