Why is it that everyday when I see a bass player and his bass, I see hair ties on their basses. There's no point in putting a hair tie on your bass when you action is 12 feet off the fretboard, especially if you play punk, rock or hardcore. I see more kids nowadays try to emulate what Victor Wooten popularized by putting hair ties on their basses. I'll admit I tried it once but it didnt work, plus it looked dumb. It just wasn't me. So my question, Whats the point. Is it for looks, why's every jumping on this wagon?
