guitarist put down made fun of myself

Discussion in 'Bass Humor & Gig Stories [BG]' started by Garrett Mireles, Mar 17, 2003.

  1. I told a guitarist that "Guitarists need 6 strings to show off...we only need 4."

    he said, "Damn straight."

    doh :meh:

    it's like..saying we suck so we only need 4 strings to show off..but guitarists are good so they need 6. There goes that one.

    Any ideas on how to get around this? Thanks :D
  2. find a new band, or kick him in the nuts.

    o! put a laxotive in his coffee or something...



    man im good.

  4. Well THAT solves my problem :D

    Maybe I'll just swap the low B for a high C..and the bass has 24 frets...I can mimick all his lines up to the! fret on his high E string

    He only has 1 fret to escape me, I'll be riding his ass the whole time :D

    sounds like a plan to me:D
  6. Or... you could learn to play better on your bass than he does on his guitar.

    I think he would be better off trying one of the other ideas!!! ;)

    Next time your band is hanging out around other people (like a show maybe) act like you guys are fighting and then just scream at him "WELL WHY DON'T YOU GO AND SCREW YOUR COUSIN AGAIN AND STAY AWAY FROM MY (MOM, GRANDMA, SISTER, DAD) YOU SICK BASTARD!" It should work relatively well.

  16. yeah i agree with the 7 string idea, that would be the best thing to do, but only if you know how to use the extra strings, nothing worse then dead wieght on your neck
