Apologies if this is in the wrong forum.... Although I'm already in a band I frequently will look at the musicians wanted/available section of local websites. It seems to be an increasing occurence to see: Bassist wanted, 5 string required/preferred. 5 string required?! I didn't know that my skill level is directly proportionate to the number of strings on my bass. And if that's the case, why are there so many crappy guitarists?
