Well, start jamming to chord sequences played round. Obviously play the roots with the chords, and gradually incoporate runs on the bass between each root.

From that, just work round what sounds good. Octave's always sound pretty cool, and work on some slap/popping, because that's often used in rock to create funky sounding basslines.

Also, learn the various blues riffs, learn this one and move it around, but learn others as well.


G - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
D - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
A - - - - 2 2 5 5 3 2 - - - - 0 0 3 3 1 0 - - - - - -
E - 3 3 - - - - - - - - - 1 1 - - - - - - - - - - - -  


Or something like that.

It's two chords, with the G and the following riff being in G Major, and then the F and the following riff in F Major.
