So, I'm wondering about creating bass lines for original music. I've been trying different bass ideas on a keyboard to start with, makes it easier with the sequencer (that may be my problem,) and I seem to like ideas that are more melodic than that which hugs the kick and snare. If you write, do you add bass lines after the main melody, or do you come up with all of the music first? Or does it just depend on the tune? Gonna try to upload an example, here. I took out the idea I had for the chorus and am just playing root notes. The chorus is pretty bland without the original bass part, but, it was melodic to the point that I can't think of what to sing over it! Hope this makes sense. Any input you have... just want some feedback, and your experience. Please let me know if the link doesn't work, new to this stuff. Thanks!
