Recently, I left one band I was playing with because we weren't really serious and I had other friends that I played with all the time for fun that just want to play music like me. We started a band a while ago and not until now have we started writing our own songs. Our guitar and drums are really strong and I am proud to say we have a good singer. The problem is me in my eyes. I feel the genre we are building/ playing needs stronger bass lines. I am a decent player in my eyes. I can play yyz with ease if that says anything, but when it came to my old band, pop punk rock, I played basically 4 notes on repeat the whole song. I understand that scales are used to make more complex bass lines, but how do I connect them to make that sexy line? If I need to clear it up more I will, I am not the best with presenting my questions. As well, the genre is kind of like mix megadeth's sound, with Sabbath, with Nirvana and The Doors.
