i like b better.. bass shouldnt over shadow the guitar unless the bass player is more unique then the guitar player and acts like a lead guitar... ie: primus, death from above 1979, chili peppers etc..
Thanks for the input.
We usually don't have the bass so high, but since it's like a mini bass solo leading to the lead guitar solo, I thought it's be appropriate just this one time.
A or B, but I would try skipping those last two bass notes prior to the solo. Maybe do a little slide down (but not too loud) and sustain the dominant, don't resolve.. "ta-ta-ta-tAaaa..cymbal..." Then the guitar gives both a resolution and a new beginning. Or maybe play those two last notes back in the lower octave.
Not sure if that's gonna sound good, just an idea. Just try it, if you don't like it don't do it.
A or B?
Ok, I have voted for A too.
While I like dominant bass, he is right, it has to be dominant to be made dominant. I have seen some professionally released tracks have terrible choice of balance for their bass, but A could be made to work, in all the ways y3434 mentioned.
I actually meant "dominant" in the music theory sense, as in the 5th of the scale. What I meant is Leo's bass part is "finished", harmonically resolved. I thought if it's left "hanging", "incomplete" in the end, that could make the transition sound sexier.
I attempted that. Either I'm not creative enough to make something work or it just didn't sound right to me. I'm leaning more to the first one though.
That's cool. I was only imagining that, so I'm not surprised it doesn't sound right when played. I'm a self-taught amateur and I know I can't compose in my head.
