    I quit the last thread because of the guys feeling the need to butt in on our tiny corner of this very male-dominated forum - let's hope part two sees less of that.

    I think a girl bass player can be a very optimistic position theres no need to assume males can only handle the position. one of my favorites, all that remains, has a woman for a bass player. i was a little bit surprised to find this out but i have only gained respect for the band

    This is exactly what happened in the last thread and every guy that posts here should go find something else to do.

    The answer lies in the post I put in the last thread. One of you become a mod with full power to temporarily ban members who keep coming into the ladies room uninvited.

    Khronic is worse than a troll because he just insulted all of you with that statement and he should be gone from the forum for a couple weeks after a thread trashing post like that.

    Boys - If you absolutely must post here, please keep it constructive and respectful, and we'll all enjoy this thread more for it.

    Anyway... enough of that malarkey.

    I've just seen a photo of Wanda Ortiz playing Fender's Steve Harris signature bass (or at least something that looks very much like it). She's tiny, and makes me feel like a real wimp for playing Ibanez SR's and short scales...

    if you see a post you find to be inappropriate, don't post about it, just report it and otherwise IGNORE it. there's a red triangle with a vertical black bar by every post, just click it and give a reason why you think that post is questionable, and it will go directly to the moderators of a particular forum.

    posting complaints doesn't help and only increases the work we (site administration and moderators) have to do.

    so please - Report and Ignore.

    thanks :)

    please remember some folks are not native english speakers, and some concepts don't necessarily translate directly.

    I think what Panda meant here was (And this is very true in my part of the country) It's hard enough to find a great bassist....add female to the mix and you can pretty much write your own ticket...

    Another of my favorite Bass players is Georgina Prebble but better Known as Grog!! and May not be on many people's radar here in the U.S. (She plays Piano too!!)

    She played Bass for the Spice Girls, Kelly Osbourne, and Has fronted Flinch, Feline, Ultraviolet and finally Die So Fluid

    She also Plays a G&L and resembles a plus on Stage..lol

    I for one am glad that the music world is becoming less and Less a Sausage fest!

    If any of you ladies ever need advice from an old man...Gear, technique, performing or whatever just ask...always lurking here someplace...lol

    Thanks for that pic! I didn't see the headstock so I guessed it must be the Fender. Love that finish.

    Being a girl (although not a very girly one) I'm naturally drawn to sparkly things. I'm considering getting a Mikey Way mustang... not really a fan of his but that bass looks so damn cool.

    I don't think that's a gender thing, I've found bringing up anything shiny will derail any thread.

    Quite true.....but I'm NOT a native english speaker either so maybe the translation from English to French and back to English might get even more garbled......I'll keep that in mind...

    Did everyone have a nice Christmas? (Even if you don't celebrate Christmas, around here everyone gets the day off at least.) My daughter got me a new Souldier guitar strap which perfectly matches my Ibby (what a sweetie!).

    As an aside, what is with the video game ads on this site, featuring unrealistic women with bouncing bosoms fighting each other? I get that it's a video game and this site is mostly men, but does the ad have to look like a porn ad, for cripes sake?
