Sorry to hear it didn't go how you wanted, but there's definitely nothing wrong with marching bass. A good bass line is one of the coolest parts of a line to watch. I marched tenors so I'm biased towards them, but I love hearing, or playing, sick bass splits. And bass 1 is pretty fun, you get a pretty good amount of notes, kind of like snare on bass drum. The important part is just getting the experience. Work hard, show people you're committed to making the line better no matter what drum you march, and maybe they'll see your dedication and you can make the jump to tenors someday. Good luck this season!
