    With a user name like "Fruity", I kinda hope for your sake that you're a girl...
     
  6. I used to date a girl bassist. Oh the stories I could tell you if this wasn't a family oriented website. I borrowed a G string off her once. It was after we stopped dating, I broke a G string on a gig, she was in the neighborhood, I called, "Hi, what's up... got a G string I can borrow!" Glad we had broken up on good terms.

    I'm not even a bass player anymore, but I come here for my girlfriend who is my bass player! Hopefully someday she'll start participating in this forum too.

    Planning on putting up a couple pics when I get a connection that works better than the one I'm on right now. :crying:

    hu hu , g-strings, girls, bass playing, hu hu funny randy.

    Almost every girl I've been with has had an interest in the bass guitar. It's kinda weird because it's usually not an overt thing, but like, I'll get to know them and suddenly they'll say "I've had this bass sitting around for years that I absolutely want to learn how to play" or "bass is such a cooler instrument than regular guitar" ...etc. So, while I haven't dated any female bassists exactly, I have met and affiliated myself with quite a number of females that are into the bass guitar.

    That aside, I do know a couple of female bassists. One of them schools me quite decisively and I can't help but feel a little wooed(she's hot too!)

    But, thing is. There are like 5 females that post here. It's not so much because there are fewer female bassists, it's because it's the internet.

    you know why so many have them just laying around. because when they get interest in music, people tell them to buy the bass because its "easy to play" and then after a few weeks, they give up because they move on to the next trend.

    thats something i have found.

  11. I even broke a D string on that bass once... for some reason, it would pop strings when I was slapping... I think it was burrs on the bridge, or excessive bend over the saddles, something like that. One of the first G&L's. Beautiful bass, mahogany body, maple neck. Sounded great too, but the neck warped.... had to get another bass... :(

    I didn't mean THAT kind of G string. Although I would assume I could pop one of those too if properly motivated. :eek:

    Interestingly enough that has never been the case thus far. All the girls I've dated(with a couple of exceptions) have earnestly had an interest in the bass guitar. I think maybe one or 2 of them picked up the bass partially because I play it and they wanted to have something to share with me(since they already had a bass laying around anyway) but by and large, I've managed to meet and couple with a handful of girls that dig bass. Just how the chips fell I guess.

  14. They are out there, you just have to look.

    I've met three or four.
     
  15. *raises hand*

    I'm another girl bassist.
    And it has nothing to do with the latest trend. It's 'cause I'm a musician and love bass. (And my tuba). :bassist:

    They say Anna Mozart was even more gifted than her brother Wolfgang Amadeus, but wasn't taken seriously because of her gender.
