    Real bassists don't use picks.
    Rickenbackers suck.
    SS amps sound better than tube amps.
    Micro rigs rule and 810s blow.
    Don't mix cabs.
    Cover bands are sell outs with no talent.

    You should use as many effects as you can (except when you shouldn't).
    Blues is simple but not easy.
    Country is simple but not easy.
    Metal is simple but not easy.
    Prog is neither simple nor easy.
    Jazz is neither simple nor easy.
    Rock is whatever it wants to be (except when it isn't).
