bass = rhythm section

  1. My friend refuses to believe that the bass is part of the rhythm section (in the context of a rock band). He plays baritone in the marching band.

    Prove him wrong!

    Call him a jerk, that'll show him!
     
  3. What's his definition of a rock rhythm section? Just the drums? Drums and rhythm guitar?

    Sometimes you have smart friends and not so smart friends. Let him think he's right... there's no harm in that.
     
  5. Also mention to him that a piano is a percussion instrument. That should really mess with his head.
     
  6. Better yet spend the money on the Chic Corea DVD and show him the song where he is hitting the strings with the mallets.
