    Hey You!

    or

    What is that thing or guitar you are playing?

    Since I play a Steinberger Bass, I get frequent questions about what I play.

    "Bass man"

    "The guy with all the spare junk" (Am I the only one who has noticed the bass players always have the spare junk?)

    "The guy who practiced at home and made charts."

    "The guy with the gear that never breaks down"

    "The guy with the good ear."

    I could be wrong but I think this is what other people call bass players.

    As for me, they call me "Hammer". (Unless they are from Boston then its "Hammah")

    Maybe I'll just start referring to myself as a "Lower-range frequency specialist".

    My keyboardist, who does all the stage banter , couldn't remember my name when I first joined the band so he just called me "Bassey" it stuck.

    How true that is. If I did not carry the spare junk, we would have been in trouble numerous times.

    It's either that or "oh, I thought he was playing a guitar, too"
