I can relate to this discussion.... The guitarists in my band are pretty nice guys but dont know anything about bass, bass players, or the role of the bassist. They're always soloing and showing off, while im in the back rockin and enjoying myself more than anyone else in the jam session. I get into the music more than them, and probly have more fun playing it. They think its all about what your audience thinks... Also, i enjoy improvising and adding in fills often, not too often but often enough, to make it more interesting and more fun to play. But the asshole guitarists often respond to this by sayin 'jeeze man just play the line' and 'bass players hardly ever noodle around' or whatever. the funny part is theyre big zeppelin fans and should know if any bassist improvises and adds on to the riff its john paul jones. so anyway, im tired of the whole idea that bassists are just boring people who stand there and play the same few notes over and over again, because guitar sucks without bass. anyways peace. chris
