On Being the Bass Man
"The drums and the bass are the rhythm section. I have to be in the pocket with the drummer. That’s number one, being on the same page as the drummer. After that, you have to know what the other musicians are doing—be aware of the guitar player’s chords, the accent notes within those chords. Once you have those parameters established, go ahead and whip up a nice batch of creative chaos.
Then I can jump off musically and lose myself in the songs. The bass player is typically the one who doesn’t speak—the most integral but the least visible. This bass man speaks." David Forman
