    They called me stupid!
     
  3. No kidding. What's this with detuning a bass player's bass and thus rendering him helpless? There are a lot of lame jokes about that.

    I think they're refering to bass players and not bassists...

    The rhino one gave me a chuckle.

    Any musician whose input I respect realizes that any instrument is as hard as you make it.

    Simple
    Drums - Charlie Watts
    Guitar - Dude from Green Day
    Bass - The typical 1-5 bluegrass line

    Difficult
    Drums - Virgil Donati, Peart, Danny Carey,
    Guitar - Vai, Satriani, anybody playing Jazz guitar
    Bass - Wooten, Sheehan, etc.

    Most of the bassist and guitarist jokes were really lame. There were a few drummer jokes that I hadn't heard and I thought were pretty good.

    Um, so if a bassist doesn't play bass, then what does he play?
     
  8. Ah, you see, bassists play electric bass, and bass players play bass guitar.

    Same thing. I've never gotten why people try to deny that electric bass is a member of the guitar family. Afraid of being concieved as a wannabe guitarist? :confused:

    Good one, Mark :)

    I'm an extended range luteist myself.
     
  15. Uh... isn't it the other way around? :confused:

    This one was mentioned twice. :rolleyes:

    Yeah... I don't like them either.

    NB these should be in Bass Humour.
     
  16. What if I play an electric bass guitar? :smug:

    Yeah, often. :p

    Some of those jokes are actually funny. Some of them I saw adapted to guitarists and/or drummers.

    It's called humor, calm down, people.
     
  17. On my side of the world, it's humour. :p
