I was thinkin about this the other day, and that if i were a bassist i would want to solo in songs.

If i had a band i would make sure we included bass solos, maybe drum solos too.
just coz most bands are guitar, guitar guitar, bass and drums is kinda left in the back somewhere

If i had another/side band, it would be one big solo, haha. i'd try to make it as technical as possible, with bass/guitar harmonising sweeping solo's and stuff, ahh.

Bass solos? Why in the hell would you want to play one of those? Those Ninnys like Pastorius and Claypool and shove it! Bass solos...don't make me laugh.

if a bass solo is melodic, atmospheric and good overall, it is cool, but I guess it is pretty hard to make a great bass solo.

I play a 2-handed tapping bass solo section in our one song Heaven's Advocate and another tapping part I'm working on for one of the older songs, but other than that, it's only when my guitarist and myself are doing some very technical sections, but I wouldn't exactly call that a "solo"

Cheers.
