HELP!!!!!! can ANYONE come up with a good comeback to the insult "Bass players are..

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by missymoolaura, Jan 7, 2008.


  1. Everytime people find out i play bass, 3/5 people will say " Err, bass players are just people who can't handle 6 strings"

    I have tried "ever heard of a 6,7, 12 string bass" blah blah, but i REALLY need a good comeback to put those idiots in their place!


    Any suggestions?

    Bass players are the dudes that are able to produce a sound so fat and heavy that they can simultaneously tickle their own balls and get chicks to shake their ta-tas.

    We are the sound you feel. Everything else is that annoying buzz in your ear.

    Just learn to play an impressive song on guitar... and even if they can play it just as good or better, then ask them to play a bassline that's just as challenging.

    I usually just reply with "I play bass because I dig the sound. you dig?"

    because that's the truth :bassist:

    "Yes. Just like violin players."

    or

    "I don't know. I didn't find guitar hard enough so I took bass."

    Usually playing their part on your bass while they can't play your part on either instrument shuts them off.

    You say:

    "Oh yeah? Just like how easy it is to play violin or cello?"

    Then you body slam the ignorance out of them.
     
  18. So I guess the "Sit down on my cab, baby, and I'll show you why I'm better than the guitarist" line won't work for you then, eh? :p
