I'm sure everyone has heard at some point in their bass playing development that "bass is simple, boring, and only played by someone who couldn't play guitar", or something along these lines. What do you think about that? I personally take offence to it because i think it's untrue (although i have seen plenty of bands, espically here in my college town, that have bass players who don't do anything at all). I have alaways personally thought bass is far more interesting then guitar, and more difficult to play well. There are many different styles to play that involve a lot of differnt hand motions and conditioning (partly responsible for why i'm biased against pick players). Not to mention EVERYONE plays guitar, espically living in a college town. If i wanted to start a band here i could easily find 5 guitarists who are equally good. Don't take me the wrong way though, i also like guitar as well. It's also my believe that it takes a lot of creativity to play able to bass really well. Of course this is just how i look at it, what do you guys think?
