made my musical horizons expand beyond what I could have ever thought had I not started playing bass while yes I am still a bit drunk at this point I think one of my favorite things about being a bass player is what I've learned to appreciate. I think it is unique amung us bass players that were are inheritly open to a vast aray of music sure we all have our favorites but I think we share a certain appreciation for music that most of our more glory hoggish musical counterpart arent so in tune to. so I'd like to know from the rest of you what has being a bass player taught you about music life or whatever else. I've learned more on this forum than any other I've been on so I'd like to learn some more. so out with it what do you love about being what we all are!!!
