    Have you had any dreams, funny or not, directly dealing with bass? If you can remember them, post them.

    Mine was weird, and I don't remember much.

    I just remember my best friend Nadia (She's good lookin', especially with a bass), playing a Spector Euro 4 in Amber, and she kicked ass. (I've seen her really play bass, and she should stick to brass instruments). Then I was in my elementary school sitting in a classroom, and it was dim. I saw a Ken smith 6 string with a walnut top and I picked it up. Then I woke up :p
  2. Last night I had a dream that I was not just the bass player for my band, but the harmonica player too. :eyebrow:

    and...my band has no harmonica in it.

    I had a dream where i ended in a shop with a bunch of Rittters. I also had a dream where I got some bass, I had no idea what it was, and some kid ended up getting his hands on it and ruining the finish, it was terrible.
  6. I had a strange dream. I was taking part in a TV gameshow, and I came in first place. The prices were two basses. A buttugly Epiphone Explorer bass, and the other a gorgeous custombuilt bass of unknown brand (a bit blurry on that part).

    Guess which bass I chose? THE EXPLORER!!! After that, I realised my mistake, and said "I've changed my mind", but by that time the show was over. I started crying, and smashing everything around me with the bass, then bashed myself in the head for being so stupid, and woke up...

    I've also had a lot of nightmares where my basses get destroyed, huge cracks and splints, necks breaking or dismantling, basses melting etc etc etc. I just hate those dreams. One time I had one where I was on tour in London with my brother, who I told to hold my bass while I paid a visit to a restroom. When I came back, he had left the bass in the middle of the street, without protection on the ground. Luckily in that dream I was able to pick up the bass before anything happened.

    I think those are more like nightmares :) . I've had a couple of the dreams where my bass broke and there was no way of fixing it, but it was something stupid like a string that broke and I was going into a total depression because of it.

    I love the dreams where you are playing so well and it's in a giant crowd and everyones digging the music. It's the paradise dream where everything goes perfect.

    I was actually the bassist/harmonicist(?) in a band a while ago. Not really, the harmonica was only in one song and we didn't always play it that way.

    And my bass-related dream was: Last night I had a dream that my custom bass arrived with the wrong pickups. I couldn't change them because they were the wrong shape (P instead of J). Funny, because I've got a custom on order for which I haven't chosen the pickups yet.
  9. Last bass-related dream I had was a strange one where I was trying to hide (don't know why) a blue velvet Modulus Q5. I didn't know where it had come from. Such a strange dream...
  10. I had a dream wher eJohn Turner gave me his two 8 strings. Then I woke up and I was sad.

    Last week I dreamed I left a custom fretless lying in the street and a car ran over the neck. :eek: :bawl:
  13. I have a common dream-theme wherein I'm supposed to start playing and some part of my rig is missing. Had one last night, took most of the dream to find my bass and when I did the gig was over.:help:

    This alternates with my "I'm at Burningman, but it's in the wrong place (on the beach, or a grassy valley)" theme. Oh, and the Nekkid in public dreams - but since I started going to Burningman three years ago I'm no longer embarrased in these dreams, it's now "well, I'm at work, nekkid, think I'll get something done." :p
  14. damn, i never dream about anything, let alone bass. :scowl:
  15. I had a dream that I inherited a house and in the basment were eight conklins and they were all mine...but they were weird looking and needed to be fixed up, they were vintage or something...another time I had a dream that I won Claypool's rainbow bass, only problem was A) His wife didn't believe I won and wouldn't give me the bass B) When she finally did give it to me, it was a lefty and I couldn't use it, I got so frustrated I threw it into a lake or something :crying: :D
  16. We all seem to share that My-bass-is-broken-beyond-repair dream...I think everyone has had that one
  17. I dreamt Les agreed to sell me one of his basses for twenty thousand dollars and unfortunately I was much like in real life, utterly broke, yup. Unfortunately I dream realisticly. I mean it was a dream why didn't he say "sure have this rainbow one, oh ya and Cameron Diaz wants you to join her on a private yacht cruise".

  18. Its a sign! :meh:

    I had a dream a few nights ago that I was playing on stage with metallica, only i had long blond hair anr was playing that gigantic 11 string someone posted up a while go. I knew its was a dream because if i ever played something that ridiculus i would beat myself up.... and i wasn't. But dont worry guys, i kicked my ass the next morning for even dreaming about it.

    I also had a dream about a week ago that I was being taught by victor wooten in my school bass room. For some reason he was wearing his mic. But I was also playing a warwick triumph upright six string which was cool, some how i was geting a very nice slap/les claypool tone out of the upright, which is very strange. And then my guitarist walked in the room with his guitar gig bag and pulled a grand piano out... *** :confused:

    I sometimes have a recurring dream where my bass is outside getting rained on and I can't get to it. I guess it's my subconscious telling me I need to practice more. :(
