Bass is to music what MSG is to Chinese food

    I play with a trio of other musicians (2 acoustic guitars and a violin), and missed our last jam session. The violist commented afterwards that they all felt something was missing from the sound, and then realized it was the bass. I replied that the bass makes all the other instruments sound better, kind of like MSG in Chinese food.

    Disclaimer: MSG is not good for you, but you get the idea.

    I sprinkled some inside my speaker cabinet and have a small bag of it in my bass case.

    It's amazing how much my tone improved.

    Bass doesn't give me a headache, MSG does.;)
