You might get some ideas from listening to Pet Sounds. Brian Wilson did a lot with a stand up bass part holding down the low bottom and Carol Kaye playing a very plucky Fender bass part against it, a lot like dbbubba just described for CW, but very complex harmonically. Different style of music from what you are doing, obviously, especially in that Hal Blaine's drums were not recorded anything like what you are doing.

Still, the part that would be most useful for you is to hear how Brian Wilson used the arrangements/sounds to get them out of each others way and make them each do their job. Clearly the arrangement is the most important part for issues like this, not the sounds of the instruments.
