Listened to Martin's great funky old track, got a couple ideas and decided to play a riff and see where it went and what I could come up with as it went along. Good fun! Love to hear some free form funk guitar, keys, etc.

Damn you're the master of those little runaway mid-tickling riffs+1

Ernie440 runaway mid-tickling .. guess that's a good thing!! :) thanks G! +1

Are you playing with a scale in particular, or using specific shapes to mess with? I'm so curious how people "create" bass lines. My simple understanding results in my starting on the root note, then doing a pentatonic shape maybe, or a triad, or just doing 4 consecutive frets for a "creepy feel or maybe root 5th, root 5th etc.

How do you think of it when you just go to jam? Do you put a root note in your mind and work off of that? Or do you have some crazy scheme where you're all over the fretboard with no plan?

Ernie440 Basically just get an idea for a little root note riff/s and then play whatever I feel as connecting riffs and hopefully something cool will come of it. Sometimes I surprise myself, sometimes, I'm very disappointed .. haha +1

Girard If you don't go to the 5th from the root. Where else might you be tempted to go in a jam? The fret right below it? 3 frets up? Sometimes I feel limited in where to go after that first root note. I mean there's the 3rd, the octave..I feel like i'm missing something. Maybe I need some new scales. +0

Ernie440 I don't think about it that much, I'm not a theory person, I learned by initially learning lots of songs off of albums as close as I could get and then playing in different bands over the years ... eventually you get an ear for what to play .. I dunno man .. practice practice practice!!! :) +2

Girard I love how all these great musicians have no idea what they are doing and can't describe where their fingers go lol Oh well +1

Ernie440 It's pointless to talk about where my fingers go ... use your ears and find the spots on the neck where it sounds like that. That's really how music is done. Describing how your lips move to make words is another pointless thing. +1

Ernie440 Oh I've got a bunch of little bass noodles that I've gathered over the years rattling around my old brain pan. Thanks Martin, a pleasure to jam on your drum groove, so precise as usual! +1
