    That's great. I love musician jokes. Here's one (a riddle).

    Q: How many bass players does it take to change a light bulb?

    A: One, but nobody notices.
     
  3. How do you get a guitarist to turn down?

    ...put a piece of sheet music in front of him. :p

    Here's a variation:

    Q: How many bass players does it take to change a light bulb?

    A: None. The pianist can do it with his left hand.
     
  8. I was just about to say that one.
     
  9. Dad buys his son a bass guitar and six lessons to go with it,
    after the first lesson Dad asks
    "what did you learn today son?" the boy replies,
    " I learnt the first four notes on the E string"
    a week later he asks again,
    "what did you learn this lesson?'the boy replies
    "i learnt the first four notes on the A string"
    a week later, "What did you learn today son"
    the son replies,
    "no time for lessons today Dad, Ive got a gig"

    Im a bass player so I can tell that one...
     

  10. That's funny, but mean

    Q: How many bassists does it take to screw in a light bulb?

    A: 5. One to screw it in and four others to beat back the guitarists trying to get into the spotlight.

    What they DON'T tell you is that it wasn't just ANY gig- it was warped tour. Then the Disaster tour. See, this is the true story of Mark Hoppus. :bag:
