    Play bass in a supportive role - lay down a groove foundation for the rest of the band.

    I'd have to say that either fast fingerstyle or soft melodic bass lines would have to be what I'm best at right now. But I'm getting pretty darn good at slappin'!

    I am best at composing the song as a whole. I try to write the guitar, bass, drums and vocals so that they all support each other.

    No, just your lack of confidence sucks, supremely!

    Like most others said...playing bass. :)
  15. i'm not particularly virtuosic on bass, but i think i'm fairly good at writing parts on different instruments that fit together well.
  16. Playing punk. And double picking everything so it looks like I do more. :)

    my best would be somethign fast and jumping from string to string like creeping death does so basically metal and death metal i can't play walking lines unless it's fast i like to speed things up instead of slow down. good or bad depending on the band i guess.:rolleyes:

    I suck at everything...except slap. I shouldn't be allowed to THINK about playing slap near a bass. It's like a traffic accident. Really. I rise below suck when it comes to slap. Actually, that's my next mission (tacked pick playing earlier, and popping/hammering before that)...but, mostly jsut to be well rounded. I hate playing slap.
