I've been "training" a bassist out of my best friend and he's getting a lot better and we have fun composing but i need some ideas and stuff to teach him as far as styles and bass scales for our style of music. In general i use either the harmonic minor, melodic minor, Hungarian Gypsy Persian, and in general i aim for a sort of... eastern gypsy sort of sound.. and i honestly dont know where to begin finding basslines that would give me some ideas, like rhythm and what works with the stuff i improvise/write

I was going to help you until you mentioned that you were "Training" your bassist.

Unless they're in a punk band, bassists don't have collars. They're not to be "trained". I can understand if you were "teaching" and "instructing" your bassist, but you are not to "train" him. "Training" implies that you are preparing him in a field of your own choice instead of what he wants to learn.

This is all me being picky over word choice, but that has to be my biggest pet peeve. As a general rule of thumb, every band needs a bassist; not every bassist needs a band.

Anyways, to help answer your question, get a professional. Have him understand your playing style and see if he can't help the bassist create some good basslines that meld with what your play.

Make sure you get ideas from the intro how I explained

(there are two incarnations of it that I've seen, the other is played staccato
(I much prefer the slapped way))
