Today at lunch, my friend, a guitarist, approached me and asked if he could borrow my bass for Battle of the Bands. Apparently, since his bassist does not go to our school, he cannot perform in Battles. Anyway, I asked him who was going to play bass then, since the bassist wouldn't be allowed to play. He said he would have his rhythm guitarist play bass. I asked if he would know how, and his response: "Dude, of course, everyone knows how to play bass ."
