like my guitar player is play G i wanna know the G chord on bass and so on.

Basses don't typically play chords bro. It can be done, but not in the sense of being like a guitarist. Usually bassists make up bass lines from the notes in the chord the guitar is playing. If you're really stuck, and can't grasp this concept, play roots. In other words, if the guitarist is playing a G chord, play a G.

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

You have to memorize your fret board. A G would be either 3rd fret on the E string, 10th fret on your A string, 5th fret on your D string, or open on your G string.

Or 24th fret of your G string if you have one (the fret, not the string). But that's only if you're avant-garde, most wouldn't understand

This is not a cut down. It's a pretty good book to find out stuff like you're asking. It explains chords, different styles of music, examples of riffs and runs...etc.

well, I just play the bottom of open chords on guitar, and bar them. eg:
G:

e--3--or-e--0 (this is E, but move it up three frets and you get G)
b--0------b--0
g--0------g--1
d--0------d--2
a--2------a--2
e--3------e--0

becomes:

g--0-or-g--4
d--0-----d--5
a--2-----a--5
e--3-----e--3

Those chords are wrong unless I'm missing something here. Your 'C' has no fifth but has a seventh and the G minor has G, F, B. Isn't G minor G, Bb, D?
