ive come to see from personal experience that when "the bass shadows the guitar", people say the bassist is not being creative, or that he didnt contribute much to the song musically, etc. but even though this arguments are already stupid in my opinion, theres one thing that we tend to overlook. couldnt it be possible that the bassist created the whole song, and the guitar player is the one shadowing? It happened in my band quite often, and people used to say, "man Juan, how come youre just following the guitar, couldnt you come up with something different? vdxkz;gv nl; ahhhhhhhhhhhhh pisses me off, damn commercial guitar!!
