  2. That’s why I have a 6 string and never use the high C string. No one knows the difference.:smug::roflmao:

    Hi,

    Perhaps he needs to find a position on the worship team at Our Lady Of The G String Church.

    (I'll pray forgiveness for that one.) ;)


    Thank you for your indulgence,

    Sounds like the music director at my church who is also directs and sings in the main choir. However, it's not which string she doesn't like. It's driving notes, even driving quarter notes.

    Kinda hard to play some of the popular worship songs without being real boring.

    I can play just a note on the first downbeat of every bar to keep my job, but the pay sucks at $0/hr minus expenses.

    Such a sinner! He should start playing at Our Lady of the Evening.

    Is that a perpetual G-string, or just a one-off?

    Holy crap (npi), BassCliff makes his first "impolite" comment on TB. These are, indeed, strange days upon us!

    My basses are all 5 string with a high C—
    I wonder if I could sneak it into church.

    I sent this as a warning to all the bassists on our team.

    Shaker! I shutter at the thought.
     
  16. Read the article. Wow... Pretty sure I'd tell that music director where he could shove his orthodoxy.

    I use the G string.
    I like G strings.
    I have also played entire songs on my A string.
    One reason I bailed on having a 6 string. I could probably play a 3 string and get by.

    Can't go there if you started there and never left.

    Hi,

    I'm pretty sure you meant this as humor/satire in the same way as the original article was written. ;)


    Thank you for your indulgence,
