who gives a F... what teens think or do.
hurr ir a teeangur lol bass iz faeld getarrest and olny needs 2 stuhringzzz
Srsly though, I have a 5 string and I do know full whell how many strings a bass can have! (wanting a 15 string myself!)
I got a 5-string for my 16th birthday, I'll never buy another four string again.
Sez you! I said the same thing, and two years later I bought another 4.
Me too ... tastes change over time.
Yea... I am also a bass god.
Atleast they didnt say what some 15 year old said to me about a year back "Ha ha ha.. well bass is easy it only has 4 strings!"
I don't think so, there's no reason for me to buy another four--unless I decide I want to be a session player, then I'll buy a jazz and a P. But other than that, fives have all I need. As long as I set the strap high enough I can slap without hitting the B string which also acts as a wonderful finger rest when I'm not slapping. I love having tighter string spacing and my four almost seems like a foreign object now. Oh, and the lower notes and higher positions are cool too xD
Fives are comfortable, I'll give you that. I found that a 4 helps me with learning to do more with less, probably one of if not the most important lesson I've ever learned for bass.
Haha surronded by guitarists and even some people who don't play anything and i get that daily :scowl:
All your base guitar are belong to us.
Ha! That was kind of a smart Alec thing to say, Alec, but +1 anyway. Seriously though, I find kids these days pretty smart, my daughter's friends are really up to speed. They're 17 - 19, one drummer, a couple gui****s, a bass player. I can have a good conversation with them anytime about gear and music.
Check my location!!
at least one of them isnt a complete idiot
It doesn't come near the guy here on talkbass who got a comment from a girl about a Squier being out of tune. She apparently didn't notice that it was a fretless.
I dunno, whenever I've actually heard the words "What's a bass?..." come out of the mouths of some of the teenagers I've played in front of, this doesn't seem so bad.
Hey, bass guitar is only 2 letters away from basic guitar so ...
I didn't know there were 5 string basses until about age 50.
Why? I didn't pay any attention, and wasn't actively involved in music between the ages of 25 and 50.
I only played 4-string styles and didn't care about the others. Still don't.
If bewildering things a teen says is the topic, well...I was goofing around on a g****r the other day & one of my son's friends says, "You should play that Rock Lobster song from Family Guy." I had to laugh. Oh, silly teen.
It's funny, when my friends from my old high school see pics of me playing bass, they say "Dude, I didn't know you played guitar!!"
