: The main drawback, as I see it, with playing along with yer favorite CD is that there is already a bass player who has decided what they are gonna play on that song. And transcribing somebody's line is cool, it's just that it's a different exercise to making up your own line for a tune. And no matter what kind of music you play or at what level, don't you eventually want to get to a place where you are playing stuff you came up with? You know, creative like?

from John:

Sure I'd love to be able to create my own bass lines, but I have no idea how a bass line is constructed in the first place. I am a rookie. And I want to learn what other people are doing just to get a feel for how it is done. Then certainly, I hope to create my own stuff. That is the target goal. Thanks for your comments. :)
