Any other lead singers/bass players out there?

  1. I'm just curious who else started playing bass, but is in reality a lead singer for a band. Cause, well, at the moment I suck pretty bad at the bass, but I can sing good still...lol. Fun fun fun.

    And yes, it is damn hard to play bass and sing at the same time for those of you who have been wondering.
  2. i have been the lead singer and bassist for my band ever since we started two years ago, never more one or the other

    btw, there have been about two jillion threads on this topic

  4. Thanks.

    Anywayz, how do you guys handle it.
  5. well, i dont have the coordination or patience to master singing/playing(good playing, that is), SO... i make a 7 member band with 2 bass players, so i can play easy crap or nothing and sing, and the song still has the required low end, and when i wanna play crazy riffs, i got 6 other people that can sing.

    but, thats just me

    and if i can get 3 more members we're bigger than slipknot. yay!
