    is ":bassist:" a bassist or a guitarist?

    because when you're posting and put yor mouse over him....it says bassist....and is u type in bassist(surrounded by a ":" on each side....it works...

    but yet when you are reading sumone's post and right click then click prperties....it says guitarist...

    so im confused:confused:

    anyone have any guesses or opinion of what musician :bassist: really is???

    It's a little yellow dot with a red instrument shaped thing. It's not real. Your OK. Say it with me, "I'm OK".
     
  3. regardless of what it is, people use that thing way too much.

  6. It's either a EB-3 or a guitar (those 6-string baritone guitar/bass things are kind of ridiculous IMO), and it looks like he is playing pick downstrokes to me.

    I thought the neck on that thing was a little short...do you think it's possible that whoever made the thing originally intended it to be a guitar and whoever decided to use it at this site decided it should be a bass (that's my theory based off of the clues you provided) All I know is it's not playing the drums.:bassist:

    Someone in an old thread pointed out that is has to be a guitarist because his hands are playing 4/4 tempo but his head is playing 6/4.

    He's actually a drummer.

    You can tell, because he can't nod his head in time to his playing.
