One of the functions of bass playing is to keep the pulse, more
specifically the "one" on the beat. Maybe because we do this on a
regular basis, we have almost a "sixth" sense that, like a beacon,
allows us to know where this is at any point in a tune. I am surprised
though at the amount of other players that feel lost the moment the
"one" is not there - take latin music, as an example.
I was at a rehearseal last night and the moment I tried to play
something different (that is, not on the "one") - and I am not talking
about a county tune, or a classic waltz so to speak - everyone was
lost, yet I was then able to pull everyone back the minute I went back
to the "one".
Do you think bass players develop a stronger sense of pulse (that is ,
the "one") compared to other players?

I don't think we have a monopoly on The One. I know some guitarists &
keyboard players who are so much in the pocket that it's a joy to behold.
I also know one particular singer who's gonna get a tambourine shoved up his
ass if he doesn't figure out where the 2 and the 4 are located.
