So, I 'm hanging out with friends who've just got a button maker for Xmas. With this tool, we've decided to create buttons that will help bassists communicate the full range of snappy retorts to band members, express common frustrations on the gig and generally help people who aren't bassists understand our thinking. Admittedly, the buttons so far reflect my own passive-aggressive misanthropic nature, so I'm asking other bassists to add to the list we've made so far to widen the scope. Here's what some of the buttons say: Bassists are musicians too I read music. Do you? Tune your guitar please. Count in 4 please. Find the key please. I do more with 4 strings that you do with 6. It's how Jamerson did it! Flatwounds baby! Will only slap for pay! At least I know what key we're in! You don't need all those pedals. No left hand please. Read the chart. . . oh, wait! If you help load in/out, I may start liking you. Gig without bass. . . dare you! Did you bring a back-up? At least the sound guy likes me! Any more suggestions? Promise, we're not making money of this. . . just wasting time really! Cheers!
