What is lead bass playing?
I was reading about one of my inpirations in bass Cliff Burton and it said Metallica liked his lead bass playing. But I don't know what lead playing is. So what is it.

Playing lead bass:
-Playing with high treble (distortion is optional)
-Not playing a bass line (continuos strumming), playing a melody.
-Not playing in sync with the drummer.
Pretty much not playing like a traditional rock bassist.
