At times earlier in my bass playing experience, composing came to me quite naturally and the frontier for creating music was still fresh and full of wonder. Now I find myself recreating similar riffs over and over time and time again. For whatever reason, that frontier a bit barren now. I've lost identity in my own bass playing stlye. Perhaps I need inspiration?

What inspires you to create something on the bass?

Learn some music from a genre that may not like so much. If you dont like blues, tough it out and learn some. Seems to work quite well I find. Even... just maybe... learn some country or something. Give it a go!

I'd say try composing other parts on a different instrument.

I've found that pure composition on bass is very constricting, so I mainly compose on the piano.

These are my feelings though, you might be different.

Bass isnt the best compositional instrument, mainly for the reason that its tough to play chords, and your very restricted in voicings.

Therefore, I prefer to compose on a piano, or at least a guitar
