    Hmmm, artistic merit aside, not to be too technical...

  7. A Haiku consists of three lines: five syllables, seven syllables, five syllables.
    Now, let me think of one!
     
  8. Try to play the groove
    But the drummer speeds ahead
    Find the one, moron

    Practice space a mess
    My rig was here, now it's there
    Other band must die

    Piece of wood with strings
    How much are you? Four thousand?
    Never freakin' mind.

    wee four-strings are cute
    bring back child-hood memories
    feel like fat crayons :D

    seven-strings are big
    they help one to compensate
    for teenie weenie :eek: :D

    Playing bass is fun,
    Though bad drummers make it feel
    like a root canal.

    Broken strings reduce
    A very expensive bass
    To a boat paddle.

    There was a young man...
    Oh, wait, this is a haiku,
    Not a limerick.

    Groove and I are one.
    Audience can't stop dancing
    But they don't know why.
     
  19. I really suck bad
    And no one likes me at all
    Is this my great fall?

    I play crappy bass
    My ibanez sucks the bum
    please give me stingray

    my amp is still small
    and it is not tall at all
    give me an eden

    I am wasting time
    doing this really dumb stuff
    I am gonna go
