A simple Inquiry

I was just wondering...I have a bitch of a tiime doing it usually, but do you guys ever write a song wholly off of the bass part? Like writing the bass line, then fitting the guitar and lyrics and everything in with that? I've found that unless I'm just jamming out 12 bar shit, I can't really do it...

Well, all songs of D.A.L. is bass-based... (we have 2 bassists (4 and 7 strings), and no giutarists, hehe... The 7-strings bassist has a cool Roscoe SKB3007...)

Anyways, the really bass-driven songs I wrote to my bands -
White Section - Color Changing World
Black Section - No Origin
Black Section - basically every song on our first two demotapes.

I don't remember any more...

i write on the guitar first then put the bass parts to it. some times i write the lyrics first then guitar, bass. it depends on the mood and the amount of jack daniels i consume as to what order i write. anyway it all comes out evil!!!

In my ex-band we had a quite good drummer. He played something and i jammed to it.
We created some songs with this jamming.
It was really fun. There was no pressure to create a song and you just played in the same rhtyhm as the drummer and after a while the guitarists found a good riff, too.

yeah, we've got a pretty ok drummer, I come up with basslines most of the time and our guitarist start improvising and we just find a good riff, sometimes I change the bassline afterwards but we start of with basslines and drumgrooves most of the time.. pretty weird but it works for us on most songs.

True, I don't know,

I just sit around in my room playing bass for 2 hours improvising my ass off and writing down the kickass stuff...

some people can't do it, I dunno why, but it's just a matter of constant improvising and thinking ahead, just think 'what kinda riff do I want?' and play it, lol, and from there on improvise it, that's the way I've done it for a long time now and it works fine for me.

The main problem my band has is finding riffs that go good together. For one part of the song we go through like 6 different possible riff combinations until every member is satisfied with the sound and is'nt just playing some simple cliché riffs.
