so i am wondering what exactly a bass guitar should be playing in a song. is it the root note of what the guitarist is playing or should he be playing something else?????
well it depends, in what genre are you writing?

first, put it in the right forum. bass forum. not lyrics.

second, basically..yes play the root note. but not just the root note. learn your scales and improv and make it cool. dont just rock the root note like too many bands these days. then you become an insult to bassists.
