I record bass lines for my own music, so I hope that what I say can help. I'll shorten it buy basically this

1. The bass is the most important part of a band or song, keeps the rhythm and groove. Work on playing in time and in a pocket with a drummer/drum track and practice that way so when you play with people you dont get lost or dont ruin a good jam session groove ya got going

2. Always practice scales and some bass techniques/practices. Walking a bass line, slapping/popping, pick/finger dynamics are all fantastic.

3. Have fun (i hate saying this but it's important)

I hope some of this doesnt sound too basic or boring but its all what I'd consider the essentials
