Guitar or bass?

  1. People who play guitar AND bass -

    If God came down from on high and said that from now on everyone could only play and own one instrument, would you choose guitar or bass?

    For me, it would have to be one acoustic auditorium style steel string guitar. But, I would suffer!
  2. Gee, tough question. I think I might have to choose my didge. :D
  3. bass.. there's too many guitarists as it is :)
  4. If God did decree that we could only play one instrument, I just might say, "Lord, make me your upright player." ;)

    I would have to take refuge in atheism.;)

    If that didn't work, I would probably go with my trusty nylon-string guitar.

    i reckon i'd go with bass as it is my first love ;)
    but the advantage of say a guitar, is that you could play basslines on it!! and chords!!

    short scale bass
  8. I was about to choose an instrument, but it would probably get me thrown off TB - just crude!!!

    I would stick with bass, I do play guitar as well - but it would have to be bass for me!

  10. Bassasauras for sure, I played guitar before bass but have to say I enjoy the vibe of playing bass heaps more. Been playing bass for about 4 years and I've barely picked up a guitar since.
    Plus i love funk now.

  16. An 8-string bass (tuned F# B E A D G C F). It's so much more versatile than the guitar :D


    A doubleneck instrument with 5-string bass on top and guitar on bottom :cool: Or is that cheating? :eek: ;)
  17. i guess acoustic guitar. it would have to be a really nice one, though!

    That would be a merciless God!

    I'd have to say bass, but I'd need a 6 string.

    I think my next instrument purchase may be a Martin 000-18 though.

  19. Lovely guitar! I lust for one.
