I've become frusterated lately, with trying to write music that involves a piano and bass guitar and I would appreciate it, if somebody could please explain to me what it is, that I am doing wrong...
When I look at sheet-music for piano, I see that there are the following written out:
piano (bass and treble clef)
**What I would like to do is start working on re-arranging cover songs, that I pick up from piano sheet music or a fakebook, but everytime that I play the bass part with a piano patch, I also then play the same bass part a bass guitar patch, it sounds very muddy, and not at all the way how somebody would arrange for a band, in the sense of piano, bass, drums, keys, guitar...etc...**
I'm also confused on what piano players do with their left hand, if they already have a bass player...like Elton John, Billy Joel, Barry Manilow, Carole King, Burt Bacharach...etc...does the bass player play the same bass piano notes?
Can somebody please tell me what it is that I am not doing correctly?
Should the bass guitar be playing the same bass part as the piano's left hand/bass?
Thank You So Much, and I'm Sorry for Asking So Many Questions Lately...
