Couldn't agree more (apart from the 5 Es..?) The fact you're choosing bass as opposed to 'easy-guitar' speaks volumes.

Advice: listen to the timing of every song you listen to, and not just the kick ('though thats the backbone) listen to the snare and the 'hat if you can lock in with them, even with root notes, you'll be doing well, basically remember you're rythmn section.

Song-wise, again have to agree with 1bl, you'll find that most of the basslines singled out aren't the complex 'widdly' ones as they tend to suck anyway. Generally, timing and bridging the gap between Drums and guitar are the most common features.

When you get in a band watch your drummer make eye-contact with him, you'll start to work as a unit, sounds weird but it works, you learn that a nod from him means a suspended note or an emphasised note or whatever...all of a sudden your band sounds good! Guitarist gets all the credit, obviously :lol:
