    I'm sure this is an old thread but I haven't found it... Who has some good jokes about bassists? Because sometime a laugh at our own expense is still a good one!

    An anthropologist and his assistant were researching a small tribe on a remote South Pacific island and noticed a constant drumbeat coming from a distant mountain. They asked the tribal chief if the constant drumming bothered them.

    "Drum beat, good", said the chief. "Drum stops, bad".

    "Why? What happens?" asked the anthropoligist.

    "Bass solo", the chief replied.

    Three Bassists are walking through the woods, and they come across a set of tracks.

    The first bassist says "Those are Deer tracks"

    The second bassist says "No...those are Bear tracks"

    The third bassist says "You're both wrong...I know my tracks, and those are Moose tracks"

    ...then the train hit them.
  4. What do you throw a drowning bassist?

    His Amp.
  5. I know I've posted this before, but.......

    What's the difference between a bass player and a mutual fund?

    The mutual fund eventually matures and makes money. :D

    How many bass players does it take to change a lightbulb?

    Trick question, a bassist will try and reuse the same lightbulb, but first he will try boiling it to get some more brightness out of it.

    (for the youngsters, this refers to the practice of boiling dead strings. something a lot of us old timers would do when we couldn't afford new strings. It actually worked to a point.)

    How do you get two bassists to play in tune? Shoot one.

    What's the difference between a pizza and a bass player? A pizza can feed a family of four.

    How do you tell if the stage is level? The bass player is drooling out both sides of his mouth.

  18. A bassist walks into a bar. Bartender says, "We don't serve your kind around here."

    Bassist replies, "That was mighty low."

  20. Win, because you can't very well use it as a drummer/guitarist/______ joke. :)

    On topic/semi-bass specific: Did you hear about the bass player who was so depressed over his bad timing that he threw himself behind a train? :ninja:

    Edit: Also elgecko's above. :D
