    So should I start playing a 4/4 size bass so people will stop telling: " hey man, nice cello you got in there", when people ask me what instrument I am playing and I answer I play the bass, I am not sure if they really know what is the bass by the look in their faces, am I the only one playing these gigs where people never saw a bass before?
     
  2. You`re lucky,i usually get`that`s a big violin`
    It would be nice to have some answers lined up,any suggestions?
     
  3. We've all been thru it. I allow a perfunctory smile and proceed to go about my business as if they didn't exist.

    Regardless, a lot of people would STILL think it's a cello anyways. You just can't win.
