Going into my fifth service this weekend with the church choir, I thought I would see if I could pick up some more tips from you folks. As you might remember I had been away from the bass for many years. Played full time in my younger years country and late 50s early 60s rock and roll. So obviously my heavy playing years were pretty much in the 3 chord song range. I find myself most times, especially in selections that I haven't had a chance to tape at rehearsal and work on in the wood shed, playing the notes corresponding to the guitar chord symbols. I am getting better at using approach notes when moving from one to the other. The notes and where they are on the strings and and frets are beginning to gel and become second nature once again without me having to think and hunt for them. I found myself last week changing my method a bit. If the song is in G for instance , then I am tending to skip all the guitar chord changes unless it is G C or D and only playing to those changes. This gives me more opportunity to add some nice sounding approach notes when moving to the chord change. Am I using the best technique as I have described above? If not, what would you suggest to better my technique with this type music. The director likes what I am doing thus far, and the other choir members are taking to this new electric bottom well, but I feel like I am mostly playing notes corresponding to the same chords the acoustic guitarists are playing, and I want to expand upon that. Thanks in advance.
