  1. It's important toestablish a strong bond between a bassist and a bass, one of the best ways to do this is to hang out with your bass, take it to dinner and a movie, or just spend quality time with it. Remember your bass has feelings to, so treat it right

    For the first few nights, I sleep with mine. I also when laying in bed, place the body on my ear, and play notes so I can hear them thru the wood.

    to this day i still end up it bed with my bass. i try to put her away before i got to bed, but i end up playing until i fall asleep and bam!!! there it is
     
  4. please remember to be responsible- if you and your bass are in the same bed PLEASE use protection (Hard shell cases work good)

    I used to do that until I got married. Now i enjoy my old lady's curves more than my basses (in bed that is)

    I usually have my bass on while i'm sitting on the computer, or watching tv, in the car etc. i think i crossed the line when i didn't bother to take it off to use the bathroom. :confused:

    ya maybe just a little:bag:
     
  9. i do that too. or i'll put my ear to the back of the neck. or place the base of the body on the edge of my big computer desk, so the notes resonate through the wood of the desk.
    i sleep with my bass in bed sometimes.

  18. Admit it, guys. Most, if not all of you have wood envy with your bass(es). I know I do. :oops:
