There are very few bass players, in my opinion, that really excel at both playing the groove and soloing. What I mean when I refer to soloing is being guitarr to play a genre consistent solo, a solo that is appropriate for the genre, not the wonderful solo you always play regardless of the style of music.

I have focused on the groove my whole career and just kind of dabbled in soloing, picking up tips and ideas from the greats over the years. One of the most memorable is a lesson with John Patitucci many years ago where he explained, in detail, his approach at playing melodically.

A lot of it went over my head, and I was too focused on still improving my groove at that point to spend the hours needed to become proficient in his suggested method of ear training and chord extension study, but the exposure motivated me to apply some of the concepts to my playing.

So my point here is that even if you never become a great soloist you can eventually find your voice without sacrificing your priority of laying down a creative and inspiring foundation. Here are a few tips that may help you smoothly switch hats from the keeper of the groove to the soloist, that guy in the spotlight that all ears and eyes are focused on.

Reach but try not to overextend, you can create a great solo just by playing the groove sometimes. Just hearing the bass by itself, isolated, can provide enough contrast and create the excitement needed to move an audience.

There is nothing wrong with starting a bass solo with lines centering around the root. I think it helps certain audiences transition from hearing the full rhythm section to the bass solo.

But in your development of the solo it is sometimes nice to ditch the root and make use of the other notes in the chord or scale to help your solo become more melodic. Here are a couple of examples of me soloing with two of my favorite guitar players.
