    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

    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:
