Dan Elder replied to dan smedley's discussion 'improveing playing' in the group Bass Guitarists
"Listen to some other styles. I have found "urban" gospel to be some of the most complicated bass lines in music where as alot of the "contemporary" worship styles are as you say very basic. "

Bill Guynn replied to dan smedley's discussion 'improveing playing' in the group Bass Guitarists
"first of all I think it makes a difference on what kind of music you are playing. next you have to practice alone with the music. over and over, listen to the bass player in the song if you want to sound like the "cd" but by playing over…"

David D Waggoner replied to dan smedley's discussion 'improveing playing' in the group Bass Guitarists
">>  Listen to James Jameson on all those great Motown cuts.   I second this.  (and would add Bob Babbit, but those 2 men sounded so much alike even they did not remember who played on certain tracks) Another one to listen to is…"

David D Waggoner replied to dan smedley's discussion 'improveing playing' in the group Bass Guitarists
"I am going to echo what the first reply said: Practice.   I would figure what keys you play most of your material in and practice those scales, from the lowest note in the scale** all the way past the octave point on you high G string.…"

Toni replied to dan smedley's discussion 'improveing playing' in the group Bass Guitarists
"Thanks Greg. It's probably down to training, but I've obviously mixed up 1 beat with 1 note. As for suspenders, it depends (pun not intended) on whether you mean the American or British versions."

Greg Newhouse replied to dan smedley's discussion 'improveing playing' in the group Bass Guitarists
"Off topic: Alas, I shall probably never, ever, ever be able to justify having a suit made at Sir Tom Baker's shop in Soho. But I sure would like to have that done, someday. And I'm pretty sure that his shop is NOT one of those kind of…"

"half note = minim quarter note = crotchet eighth note = quaver sixteenth note = semiquaver   and clearly, suspenders will not be found in the menswear department, unless you're in one of those kind of shops. ;)"

Toni replied to dan smedley's discussion 'improveing playing' in the group Bass Guitarists
"Quickie question then - eighth notes refers to how the bar is segmented, rather than to sub-divisions of a crotchet? I never needed to know, but in that case it makes guys playing 16ths seem a lot less awesome!"

Diana Jurss replied to dan smedley's discussion 'improveing playing' in the group Bass Guitarists
"Thanks guys.  Actually that is very similar to how I learned to play African drum rhythms (Djembe and DjunDjun drums).  I'd count out loud and play  1 2 3 and 4   1 2 and 3 4      and 1 and 2 3 4 to get…"

"Or you could just look at the drummer incredulously and say, "You mean you don't want me to sound just like the recording?"  "

Greg Newhouse replied to dan smedley's discussion 'improveing playing' in the group Bass Guitarists
"On occasion, listen to something besides modern worship and praise music. Even something as dated sounding as 70s disco tracks by groups such as Chic had some pretty good studio musicians (Nile Rodgers - guitar, Bernie Edwards - bass) with…"

Wulf Forrester-Barker replied to dan smedley's discussion 'improveing playing' in the group Bass Guitarists
"If Diana is only playing quarter and eighth notes then I think the drummer probably has a point. Three routes for improving your rhythm vocabulary come to mind: 1. Listen to and try playing along with songs that don't fall into the rhythmic…"

Timothy Nelson replied to dan smedley's discussion 'improveing playing' in the group Bass Guitarists
"Could it be that the drummer is wanting the bass to do something that is not needed?"

Diana Jurss replied to dan smedley's discussion 'improveing playing' in the group Bass Guitarists
"Any advice on how to improve the rhythm of bass lines?  I think I'm fairly proficient with the fretboard, scales and knowing what notes make up chords etc.  But the drummer wants me to break out of my rhythm "box" and…"

Greg Newhouse replied to dan smedley's discussion 'improveing playing' in the group Bass Guitarists
"By ear, by chart, or by score, everything in its place. I have a tendency to find things that I don't do well and work them to death, rather than repeating things that are easy. I find sight reading difficult to retain for very long when…"

Wulf Forrester-Barker replied to dan smedley's discussion 'improveing playing' in the group Bass Guitarists
"To improvise from a chord chart will require you to be a better musician than the guy who looks at it and says "I can't do that". Of course, it also requires you to be a better musician to nail the dots or play coherently entirely by…"
