I don't really understand why basses have 24 frets, I mean, I've never seen a bassist playing more than the 12 fret.

Warwick Double Buck
Epiphone EB0
GK MB 210
Fender Rumble

Give that a try for writing solos. It doesn't have a ton of info but it's a nice start.

I think white people are better than black people.
While this statement is kinda racist and straightforward, it does have many FACTS to back it up lolz.

You may want to dive into the later pages of the scales lesson Applehead posted a while back:
https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=519196 as well as the "Beginning on Jazz" thread, which has at least two discussions on improv and building basslines.

A good practice tool is to pick a scale/mode and a drum loop and start improving in the one scale/ mode over the loop. Most people find it easiest to start with the blues and pentatonic scales. Another way is to play call and response. Play a lick and then respond with a like sounding lick in response.
