    why is the "bassist" :bassist: strumming like a guitarist?

    It's like danny bonaduce all over again.

    I feel better now getting that off my chest.

    Because it's actually supposed to be a guitar, we just pretend to be :cool: . If you look at the smiley it is labeled "guitarist.gif". We should revolt.....

    Toasted, I'll resist my inclination to attribute your opinion to your handle (ha ha stupid joke I know), but I'm looking hard and still not getting it.

    I'd say he should have his fingers out or something, but that would start a pick vs. fingerplaying diatribe. The neck also looks kinda short--it's a recycled guitar smiley--I know it.

    Trust no one.
     
  6. Perhaps it's a punk bassist playing a short scale bass. :oops:

    I think thats a cubist representation of the feelings deep inside of me, fighting to be released to the surface and expressed.
