i dont understand what your asking, you want a bass line but dont want it to stick out, just get the bass line to follow your root notes

im assuming your in drop D
which are B - E - F#

if in standard

B - B - C#

Its definitely in a drop tuning or he forgot to tab correctly ... but, wait ... what???

Just stick to the root notes if you don't want to be heard

Stick to root notes.
Assuming you're in Drop D.

Powerchords sounds silly on the E and A string together on a bass.

If the bass is sticking out too much, maybe it's volume/tone and not what you're playing? Ask the other guys if they think you're too loud.

I don't see what you're wanting to do.
