Bass is beautiful.

  1. This morning, I got up kind of early and the sun was shining through the window...

    *Cue sweet, almost sappy Pastoral music*

    ...straight onto the rosewood fingerboard of my lovely crappy beat up MIJ P-Bass....

    I lay down on the floor and stared upwards at the gentle luminesence of the dark rippled wood, the gleaming frets and strings, the perfect geometry of the gracefully tapered neck...

    I love bass.

    *Weeps in joy*

    You love it too. Don't deny anything; just put down what you're doing and go and kiss your bass. Then, wipe off the harmful acidic spittle and relax in the warm peaceful ambience of knowing that you own a bass, which is without any doubt the highest plane of existence achievable in an uncaring world.

    :) :cool:
  2. *cough**cough*

    Aaah...a sigh of pleasure escapes my lips as I run my fingers over her body. Her perfect, round curves leave me wondering, "How did I end up with her? Why me?"
    But that thought becomes but a whisper, as I bring my fingers to gently caress her neck. Her beautiful, slim neck.
    Then, without saying a word, I ease my hands down the length of her body, and slowly remove her G string...

    Yeah but unless you can actually play anything worthwhile on it then it's just a lump of useless wood - there are lots of bass owners out there, not so many musicians! :rolleyes:

    Get back to practising! :D

    Ears, not eyes.
  5. I like how my bass looks. It looks kinda old, with a little dirt on the fingerboard. It looks "worn in", like a really old Fender (it's a Fender copy).

    I play it sometimes too :D
  6. Uh-hmm...

    Bass SOUNDS beautiful! Bazz rulez!
  7. *choir aahhh* picturesque rolling hills and butterflies.....

    i love my bass, even tho i know she isnt the bass bass, hey she aint even a good bass...still, i love her to bits
  9. Oi! I didn't say:

    ...and never practice or use the thing.

    I do play it, honest. In fact I have a lovely black Strat which is gathering dust because all my energies are now devoted to bass.

    This is sonic discrimination! I demand justice! :p
  10. i love my bass, it's practically become another limb on my body b/c i have it on so much...

    maybe i'll write a poem about it, but i won't...
  11. Why write a poem? Just write a song devoted to it. And than play it really really good.

    You are a brilliant person....

    I'd write both(a poem and a bass part). It'd be great.

    how could you prefer drums. Bass is the most beautiful of all. It is the ultimate.
  18. dude, it's all relative...if someone likes drums it's just their preference, they aren't right or wrong.

    I was in class today (I go to Cornell University) looking (ok, dreaming) at a Spector catalog, and this dude says "***...get a guitar, basses are stupid..." Now, I love guitars with a passion, but i seriously was ready to KICK THE **** OUT OF THIS POSER in the middle of class....I gave him the stare of death and told him "After class, I'll give you a ten minute head start. After that, I'm going to HUNT YOU DOWN like a wolf after a steak!!!! :mad: "

    Oh, and about bass being less than sex: My girlfriend has had to drag me away from my instruments.
    Actual conversation: Her: "Wanna fool around?" Me: " <murmuring to myself, on> god this bass is soooooooooooooooooooo nice looking........ what did u say? no, i'm ok...."

    :D :cool: :p

    Yes, the looks come after the sound. but its the sound that makes it look so awesome. drums are to "all over the place" guiatr is to ....cluterd. but the bass! simply a work to behold.
  20. although looks may not matter, in a way they do. if a bass looks better, it usually means its of better wood, which means it will sound better(or worse, its all your opinion), and better looking basses are usually higher quality, and sound better. but in the end, what sounds like crap to me may sound good to you... if you like the sound, you like the sound. and i love my brand spankin new Ibanez BTB 406, truly a work of art...
