Play Bass in a Band!
Playing music with other people is the absolute best way to improve your skills, have some fun, and make friends in the process. Bassists should play with other musicians to gain understanding of other instrumentalists roles in the band context. Not only is this a fun way to share your musical experience with others, but this practice of listening to your bandmates offers some serious insight into your own playing and how to fit into the groove in a variety of situations.
