    Lots of idiotic statements about bass from g**tarists, right?

    Lets just make a thread dedicated to them.

    --------------------------

    "I'm not questioning that there are different ways to play bass. I'm saying it's an easier instrument on the whole than guitar. I'm not trying to minimize the technical skill needed to play bass, but when I play bass, I can relax more than when I'm playing guitar without having to worry about my notes so much or which effects pedal to press when

    If you put aside playing altogether, even the equipment you need is much much less than a guitarist or drummer. A big amp, the bass itself, and maybe an effects unit. That's pretty much it.

    BTW, I've already heard that Bela Fleck song before, and Victor Wooten plays a very good funk bass. Though, my expierience is all with rock, specifically punk, and bass for that is 99% of the time played one note at a time. I know some german punk rock songs that would make you worship the tin whistle. " Mikhail Gorbachev

    I actually quit guitar because I thought it was too easy and dedicated myself fully to the bass because it was much more fun and also much more rewarding. Never knew it would affect me the way it did.

    Oh yeah...I once heard a guy say "why do women like bass players? You are only strumming 4 strings!" :rolleyes:

    As a quick follow up...I'm not sure how long this thread will last...it's a bit on the negative side.

    After a woman threw water on Yngwie Malmsteen in an airplane after hearing him make derrogatory comments about gays, he said "She's released the f***ing fury!" :rolleyes: MP3s of it are widely available online.
