Need great examples of bands that have songs where the bass doesn't just follow the guitars, is sets rhythm with the drums, kinda like wrathchild by maiden, or accept and stuff like that. Not just in metal though, in all forms of music is good, but I prefer it idf it were metal.

Red hot Chili Peppers, Rush. Those are great examples. As for metal...meh. There's a bunch, I just can't be bothered to figure it out right now.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Jazz has some good basslines and the guitar usually just plays chords.

Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

I recently had a dream that my dad died and my mum spent the life insurance payout on a new Indian dad, who told me to convert to Judaism, even though people usually change religion in September.

Protest The Hero.

He follows the guitar quite a bit
but for times he doesn't, it is nice

Mr. Dan Briggs of Between the Buried and Me is a good example too
gotta love his counter-melodies
