Yeah, you have heard it. Guitarist act like anyone who plays a guitar can play the bass, and we are basically wanna-be guitarist who couldn't cut it, so we play bass. Well, I have played guitar for over 30 years, and I recently bought a SX jazz clone. I played bass for my local high school's production of Grease. I was a ball, but is was a total different animal than the guitar. I had to be insinc with both the drums and the keyboard. If I am in the pocket, everything is cool and nobody hardly knows I am there, but if I flub up, it is beyond noticable. Nope, bass is not a step below the 6 string world. In fact, it is loads of fun, a different animal, and lots more important than I realized before. So, all of you bass players, I salute you! You are the foundation of the sound, and I am proud to have joined the ranks of the LOW SIDE!
