If you haven't played in a band then I appreciate the difficulty in understanding the interaction necessary. Bass is required but the bassist and the drummer should be "hooked up", working together if you will. As a guitarist I always found difficulty playing bass because I wanted to do too much (too many unnecessary notes played). An unwritten law is when someone plays more the other band members play less.
Listen to music in the same genre. Learn how to build the song using intro, verse, chorus, etc
