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.

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.

No, you just slap it, then it doesn't matter what the notes are, it always sounds good!
I love slap bass, I actually got a bass this morning, my mate owed me £130 from ages ago and didn't have any cash so he payed me off with a (shitty) encore bass and a peavey basic 112 (50W) that were gathering dust. Considering thats about £400 worth of stuff new I think I did quite well.

Hah. Nah, it would just be cool to have shit at 230+ bpm, then all of a sudden stop, bass solo, half time feel, then 230+ bpm again.

Hope ya enjoy it!

Cheers.

I wish more bass solos (like Tool's 46 & 2) would appear in music. Guitar solos have just become generic and expected...

Even when they are fucking amazing, its kind of just "there" to be there. Thats why I'd rather blow someone's mind with rhythm. Or an oddly time bass solo (not me playing it, obviously).

Very true. That's why on our new CD there are only 2 guitar solo's (and that one bass solo!!!) out of 9 songs. The rythm's themselves are almost a solo, and each song does have atleast one technical breakdown section that can be considered a "solo" by the whole band. Most people seem to not even notice the lack of "leads" because of the style of music. Those that do, well...go play a Malmsteen CD. lol

Cheers.

im not a big fan of bass solo's unless its something with melody like the thing that Jason Newstead plays in the Metallica "Cunning Stunts" DVD.

The way shit goes in my head, the bass is a rhythm and melody instument. I'd much rather groove a melody behind a solo then solo myself, cause if im soloing, where's the song I mean, do you really wanna rely on a GUITARIST to hold down the fort?

Ok if you are gonna refer to metallica dont refer to newstead always Burton( kill em all, master of puppets, ride the lightning, there was some way better bass work on those rather than the black album or justice) man!!! and i just wanted to know if i was one of the few people who can really appreciate a good bass solo.

i myself think heavy/ thrash and power metal dont really need solos, just need good grooves, Death and progressive metal on the other hand thrive on good bass parts otherwise its just guitar which can sometimes not be enough
