Was checking out some ads for 'Musicians Wanted', and came across a couple that struck me as somewhat humorous... "Punk Band seeking 'serious minded' bass player..." hmmm?? Or this one, even more mind boggling; "Punk Band seeks 'talented' bass player..." again, I say huh? Personally, I don't believe I know of any 'serious minded' bassists that would seriously consider joining a punk band... As for talented??.. Just how much talent does it require for one to play a string of root notes for three chords?? michael s.
