    Hi guys! Which bass do you think is better for post-rock (Explosions in the sky, Mono, God is an astronaut, etc).??

    Post Rock? I thought people were still playing rock.

    I have never heard of a bass geared towards such man, but a P Bass with rounds might get you there?

    After google-ing what exactly that is, I see the bassists shown on wikipedia appear to have Rics.

    A Stingray would work well. They sound great with chords and such.

    whatever you feel comfortable playing and you can afford. is the best bass for all types of music.
     
  18. Yeah, me too.

    Since "post" denotes whatever it is as being after the end of its predecessor, I would say that "post-rock" is a very stupid name for a genre, considering that people are still playing rock quite a bit.

    Pretty much makes anyone who uses it sound like a pretentious moron.

    The term is pretty inaccurate. It's basically just atmospheric, instrumental guitar music that shows some similarities to conventional rock.

    well music critics have embraced it, and therefore it seems like a pretty good way to let people know what you are talking about when you are talking about that kind of music. "rock and roll" is not exactly a dignified and un-ridiculous name for a genre.
    genre names are always pretty silly and pretentious (especially sub genres) but they are a necessary evil to make it easier to talk about bands differences and similarities.
