In the bass world,things that in the classical world would not attract as much as a glimpse are hyped to no end. People that can barely hold an instrument are referred to as 'great players'. Things like reading are sometimes talked about as thought they were some kind of magic. ( you get my point) Are bassists lazy? Do many have too narrow a field of vision when it comes to the craft and art or playing music? Are our expectations of ourselves too low? Do we not take ourselves seriously enough to really learn to play(and associated skills) properly? Discuss.
