    yea dude i'm just wondering if anyone has this habit.
     
  2. that's actually an interesting poll... :)

    I voted sometimes... I hold my bass quite often while being online. i like playing something while reading through stuff and waiting for pages to load.
     
  3. Yeah I usually sit here and bust out in some slap solo out of the blue.

    Or something to that effect.:D
     
  8. I'm doing it right now, as a matter of fact.

    Yeah, me too. I can't bring my bass with me to work (yes, I can surf Talkbass at work... and play computer games :D... best damn job I ever had), but when I'm at home it happens a lot.

    So, yours is named "My Bass"?

    That's a new one - mine is named "Willie".

    ;)
