Not really into the flashy stuff there. Just find a groove or hold it all together and don't simply follow the guitar. Make it interesting. Bass playing is a philosophy and I think it gets lost when it makes itself the center of attention. You gotta have skill, but it's gotta ride the line between boring and too much.
