: Ok, just looking for some thoughts on composing rock bass lines. I have a
: decent background in jazz, folk, and improvised music, and now find myself in
: a straight rock playing situation. The band has some originals that I put some
: nice strong, groove oriented, somewhat melodic bass lines to. However, the band
: leader has
: a limited viewpoint of bass, and his response was "just play the low E string
: dude, thats what rock and roll is.(ala Michael Anthony)...thump thump thump..."
: I tried playing
: that way,and just don't feel a groove, and it is rather quite
: boring...

: Anyway, my question to you rockers out there, I hardly hear any single note
: thumpers being played on the radio these days, alot of what I hear involves semi
: melodic playing and some good grooves...anyone have any ideas as to what current
: bands have bass players that play in this fashion...Just curious...I don't have
: any intention of playing that way, I'm just interested in hearing some guys
: who do play that way...
