OK so Im in a band and i can write bass parts for 3 string power chords but whenever i write the same idea for two string power chords it sound so bad and u can totaly hear the bass stick out any pointers

here are the chords im tring to write for btw


and there are others but those are the main ones
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.
