Hi everyone, as you might have guessed, I'm a newbie and I'm prepared to take all the hazing you give. I want to take this opportunity to firstly say, I love playing bass! Next, I would like to say that I hate my &*#$%@ bass but it is a start and soon I will get something better...Moving onto my subject now, I'm taking speech class and our assignment is to write a persuasive speech. A "friend" and I decided to do a little bit of mudslinging, Electric Guitar vs. Electric Bass. This "friend", whom I now hate, is an #@%!$&* and I need to pull out all the stops to impress everyone and #%$* him off. What I need from you guys, if possible, is reasons why bass is better than guitar and what song should I learn to play for the class on Monday; I realize I have nearly no time, but I am a very committed person so I will put forth my best efforts to play what you reccommend. Thanks for reading all of this, and I assure you that in the future I will not post anything longer than this; I also hope to make some new friends here who will not trash talk bassists.
