    What are your theories on this..is it mostly true or is it just a myth?

    I think its partly true to a certain extent because I have been to alot of band's fansites and the female webmasters usually say the bassist is their favourite...

    Hmmm..something for you guys to ponder about.

    you know what they say about guys with big hands....they are probably bass players....hmm

    I couldn't say that chicks specifically dig guys that play any instrument any more than any other guy....so I won't

    I've noticed that while most chicks will go for the lead singer or guitarist, there's a certain type of girl that will dig the bass player over the others in the band. FWIW, IME these girls are a little more sophisticated than the rest.

    Of course in the end most girls don't even notice the bass player.
  6. Yes and yes, if they don't, they're not worth the time.
  7. Damn straight.

    On a side note, it always seems to me like it's cooler to be with the band than in the band. Whenever I'm playing I can't really talk to people. But if you're one of the guys that are with the band, then you still have the coolness factor working for you, plus you're not too busy to actually talk to people. Dang roadies always stealing my wimmen:mad: :D

    Hmmm, I guess. I did a mini show at our school and afterwards a really hot girl who normally never talked to me was like, "Ooooh Mr. Bassman." :cool:

    Almost all the girls I've fooled around with says they do it because I'm sexy and I'm a bass player.....hmm okay, that never happened but it would be a good story though!

    Most girls (the un-edumacated one)think you just play the guitar. Once they find out you play the bass they are out the door while making comments like, "The guitar sounds better."

    They used to dig me, often, then I got old and fat.
    So I think they just don't like old fat guys. Unless they're doctors. (the old fat guys that is)
