hello everyone! I'm finally understanding everything about how intervals work and I also play guitar so that says that I know how to harmonize, but when I Play my counterpoints, and harmonizing notes on bass I have to play the octave of course, and I want that deep bass tone though, it just sounds like i'm playing a guitar.

Can you guys/gals give me some tips on getting more "tone" with harmonizing on the bass, rather than just playing octaves?

Thanks a lot.

Less treble and more bass on your amp and find a smoother tone and it won't sound so much like a guitar.
but it aint house music that makes me want to dance.
Yep, for a more "bass-y" tone, I would slightly boost the bass and mids, while rolling off the treble a little bit.

Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.
