    what do u guys think of girls getting into bass?
     
  2. This has been covered in other threads before...

    However, I personally think it's very sexy.
     
  3. It's good for anyone to get into bass. No bass = not an awful lot of modern music. Everyone should appreciate it more, and play it too.

  9. I personally thinke that girls have NO RIGHT to play bass, or be involved in music at all. They shouldn't even be allowed to buy music.

    I am, of course, joking. :) :bassist:

    Next year, our school orchestra's bass section will consist of me -- first chair of course (lol) -- and four chicks playing upright. :> I think it's really cool for anyone to get into bass, but girls tend to have smaller hands (not a bad thing) and have a harder time with upright.
     
  13. has no one here ever heard of d'arcy?
    shes the bassist of the smashing pumpkins, and they're pretty damn good, if i may say so myself. girls rock on!!!!!:bassist: except for my evil ex-g/f, i hope someone who can play steals her guitar....

    I personally think that it is awsome whenever girls play bass, guitar or anything really. Playing musical instruments in popular(rock, pop ect) seems to me to be so dominated by guys that every time I see a girl it just seems cool. you know going against the whole stereo types thing.

    Oh and seeing a girl that can REALLY play is twice as cool.

    Here she is with her Precision. :D She has been learning my bands material! :eek: I am begining to feel the sting of competition! ;)
     
  18. Jen, I'm not a guy but, I think, well I know. women can and are great at playing bass.

    I have been a working, recording, bassist on tour for 33 years now.

    I wouldn't trade my life for any thing else.

    Bass RULES!
