Tomorrow my first oldtime jazz session takes place, and I'm asked to come as an electric bass player. It's a band with two guitar players, a piano/organ player a tenor banjo player, a singer, and me.
On some sings I have to play mando, and I was wondering,
Should I follow the banjo player in playing chords, or should I rather do some jazz-fiddle thing, trying to add some melodic lines?
We do not play instrumentals, just songs, like Doctor Jazz, Who's Sorry now etc.
Any help is welcome
