By default, when you eliminate the root from being at the bottom of a chord, it becomes an inversion of itself.
This can become a useful tool when constructing a bass line by avoiding the root in order to give an unstable feeling or imply a different harmony.
So, now the question is, how does the bass move?
Before, we talked about the root of one chord harmony move to the root of the next. What does one do when it is either the third, sixth, or seventh in the bass.
Above anything else: experiment. However, it might be wise to connect similar notes or move stepwise. Meaning, if the third of one chord harmony is the same as the seventh of the next, keep on that note.
Play with these ideas and see how they can improve with building bass lines.
