I often play bass note for note…sometimes not.
The reason is that it is easier for me to play what they are playing
on an MP3 than it is to try to create my own bass lines to a song.
Sometimes improv bass lines don’t work.
Note for note lines always work.

  Note for note bass lines only "always work" when everyone in the band is
playing note for note as well. If the other instrumentalists are adlibbing,
a note for note bass line may work fine, or it may sound like crap.

Can't believe I'm admitting this in writing: I mostly agree with Mike
