    Hello,
    I have had a couple of people already, tell me that bass is only for tall people. I want to know how true this, and how tall you guys are...
    Cheers

    The only reason I can imagine you posted this thread, is because you must be in that one!! ;)

    It's OK - size isn't everything - no need to compensate!! ;)

    Please dont get jeleous! I know that height matters to you, but if you dont think you are tall enough to be cool, there are other options, hormone stimulations and Height-increase surgery*, to name a few....
    And if you dont like what you read, then dont post.


    *A proccess in which the shins are sawed in half and pulled appart a milimeter a day :p

    Dude, you are over-reacting. Dont get high, if you do want to get high, I suggest some crack and a $25 a night hooker(though you'll have to probobly have to pay about $500 for her since you are only 3feet tall), and you're all set!

    And if that fails then I recomend you should seek a professional psychiatrist.
     
  11. Uh... it's not wise to say things like that to Bruce.

    All this 'cos I posted 1 post... :rollno:

    This thread was ment to check the average height of bass players, and yeah I was being sexist!!! Becuase chicks arent interested in these stuff as guys(no offence intended). Face it, most bass players are men, and yeah I agree there are some eception...

    I am very sorry I offeded all you short people and chicks out there!

    Those people who told you that must be midgets themselves-mental ones anyway.

    Ever see Victor Wooten or Steve Bailey?

    Height is not as improtant as girth. Maybe we should do a poll on how wide bass players are.
