Today I had a go at playing bass in the fusion band I've been playing with rather than guitar, so we'd have a guitar/bass/drums lineup. Went really really fucking well, and we ended up jamming through Proto-cosmos and Protocol a few times.
The weird part was when my drummer said that it seems like my timing's better when playing bass than when playing guitar. Has anyone else experienced something like this?
Maybe you were feeling the pulse of the song more, since it was your responsibility to help drive the groove, as opposed to play over the groove as guitarists tend to do.
