Thank You to everyone for your excellent comments, everything was relivant. So you can see why I'll expand on the cicumstances. To me it's a strange situation,

I'm the new Bass Player with the band doing the recording.I think it was actually my audition. We had never even played together. I worked the material out from the demo CD they sent me & also what I was shown on the spot. The Bass & Drums on the CD were programmed so thats their reference sound. I must have passed the audition because they've asked me to come back. I've had another week to to practice so at least this time I can put some feeling into it and not be freaking out about what note to play next. So as you can see it really was a situation of doing what I was told. Hell wait till they hear my live sound. I learnt a few years back at my first recording session which was live to DAT, that an amature practices until they get it right where a professional practices until they carn't get it wrong. It's so weird to be doing everything in reverse-record-practice-gig. This situation is another example of the beauty or ugliness of digital recording. Where an unpracticed bass line can be recorded (by someone who needs to practice his bass lines)with no feeling or soul, be manipulated and presented as finished product. Thanks again to everyone
