From reading posts here on TB, I get the impression that a lot of people have heard these types of comments. Am I the only one who hasn't? Not at gigs, not at jam sessions, not even in casual conversation.
Do people really give you grief when you tell them you play bass? I've had people who know nothing about music not know the difference between a guitar and a bass, but that's about it.
So what are you saying? That your better than all of us. How rude!
Just in terms of my bass playing. Oh, and apparently in terms of grammar as well.
Seriously though, I have never had anybody disparage the bass around me before. Even when I was starting out and was terrible, nobody made snide comments about my instrument of choice. I always found myself in the nice position of having lots of people wanting to play with me because I played bass. Really, it wasn't until I joined here at TB that I came to realize that this kind of dismissive attitude toward my fellow low enders even existed.
I've never had any grief about playing bass before. I've had people unsure as to what bass was ("isn't it a big guitar?") but apart from that, nothing.
I haven't either but I like messing with people. Especially dumb ones. I'd love to help a fellow TB'r out on that end.
"People who can't handle 6 strings are called guitar players"
Yeah. SO MANY PEOPLE! of them say it as a joke, but its SO ANNOYING! and god. im only 16, i dont wanna be putting up with it any more hahha. Hence why i made this thread. To shut the idiots up. Mostly my art teacher. he says it everytime i mention bass
Hahaha tell ya what guys there have been some bloody funny ones so far.
You could answer:
''And the singer? He doesn't have a damn instrument! He gotta be a real loser...''
''guitar=melody, bass=melody+rhythm, complex huh?''
''And I guess you never heard of Billy Sheehan?''
''Have you ever seen a guitar player playing on a Chapman Stick/Warr Guitar? and those have more than 11 strings''
''Try to paint something beautiful with only 6 colors, then try with only 4 colors, guess which one is harder''
''Oh and that explains why there is no 6 stringer instruments in classical music''
But I'd surely say something like:
'' I won't waste energy arguing with you, you're simply a worthless ignorant and stubborn person''
the bass is an easier instrument to pick up and play(than a guitar) but much harder to be good at
"If bass is so easy, play something". Hand them your bass, watch them die.
Pizzicato muscles help a lot in bed.
So your saying it only takes me 4 strings to get the job done? By the way aren't 2 of yours the same (Ee)?
I haven't either, that I recall.
It's that sort of "persecution complex" that makes some discussions seem pretty silly.
Game, set and match.
