I just have to say how sick i am of narrow minded people who consider bass as a second class instrument. I have recently had to put up with two examples of this. Just yesterday I was talking to someone about love of playing music, etc. They were asking how my playing was coming along and how muh time I've had of late to put towards practice, I was telling them songs i was learning, and after a while of talking he says "You play real guitar too dont you?" REAL GUITAR! 2nd example: I was in a music store talking to a sales person about a certain bass, and after a while he goes on about how bassists are actually in demand and how bass 'can actually be important in a band', well thanks for clearing that up for me you tosser, i would have had no idea otherwise Just wondering if it gets under anyone else's skin like it has been mine lately.
