Let’s admit that bass is important and dive in to understanding the fundamentals of the instrument!
As a guy that plays a bunch of different instruments professionally, take it from me that having a better understanding of the musicians around you makes everything better. Even if you don’t go buy a bass and study Michael Rhodes for a year, just watching this video and getting an idea of what goes through a bass player’s head will give you a leg up on guitarists that are trapped in their own little world. Music is about listening, after all.
