Have any of you encountered this before: I was at school yesterday and I was talking about bass with my friends when suddenly some kid I dont even know came up and starts to tell me "Bass sucks man, anyone can play the bass, Its just root notes and rhythm. Everyone knows guitar is harder and a better instrument." I would have put up an argument with the guy but there was really no point. Every single kid I talk to is just a single minded fool who thinks that bass is just a connecting bridge for the guitar and Drums. And the bassist I do talk to tell me they only play the bass because there band needed one but would give it up for guitar anyday. What the hell is wrong with people today. What has happened that pushed the bass guitar into the gutter in most peoples mind. Is it because about 90% of todays youth listen to mindless MTV drivel with no musical diversity at all, just blaring guitars and distortion. Please people give me a reasonable answer here.
