how to impress on bass
Well as a guitar player turned bass player I've been trying out for groups but they're all still more interested in my guitar playing than bass playing. Flattering yes, but I want to play bass.
It's been hard to impress because each time it's been without a drummer.
a lot of people just go "Huzzat?" when i talk about arpeggiating progressions.
as a guitar player It's easy to just hit a I-IV-V-I and play a few lead licks and everyone is impressed.
So I'm curious for a bass player how do you impress when a drummer is not there? and you're talking to people who don't know music theory.
