Here's an old joke from lil' old England,bet you've heard it. Drummer gets fed up with being thought of as being thick as a canteen cup so he decides to become a bass player.Borrows a bass from a mate and sits in his room for a year while he saves his pennies. At the end of the year he's getting good and he's flush with coin so he runs into a shop and says 'I'll have a pre-CBS Precision,a Musicman 5-string and a GK combo with a Hartke ext. cab.' Sales guy looks at him and says 'You're a drummer aren't you?' Drummer says'Well,yeh.How did you know?' Sales guy says 'This is a shoe shop!' Hope great mirth ensues!
