    this one made me laugh my a$$ off. from my drummer friend:
    "a guy moves to africa, and noticed the sound of drums everywhere. so he asks a local what the drums were about. the local replies 'when drums play, good! when drums stop, very, very bad'.
    one day after living there for a few weeks, he is walking through the village, and suddenly the drums stop. he panics, and again asks a local what is going on. the local's eye widen and as he screams 'BASS SOLO!' "

    An old one that I always enjoyed:

    What do you call a bass solo at a jazz jam?

    Lemme 'splain the joke.

    After the drum solo, then the bass solo. So the natives keep the drums going, cuz no one wants to listen to a bass solo.

    lol. don't doubt it. just trying to find out where he got it
  13. why native always talk funny when part of white guy joke?

    monosyllabic african sound like relative of tonto...

    maybe can poke fun at bass player but not use indigenous stereotype? (ouch, big word hurt finger when type)

  14. haha i liked it!
  15. I laughed so hard.

    I am surrounded by bass discrimination, my guitarists are cool though, they pretend to fear the bass in the same kinda way. Telling them this one tomorrow :p

    Don't know where or when it came from but I first heard it about 20 years ago. My imagination says it was probably old when bebop ruled the land.
