Does that make you an axe murder? C:? Hmm, here's a story. Once apon a time in a land far far away, there was a band. They had 3 guitarists, a drummer, and a singer. The lead guitarist, the rythem guitarist, and the bada** guitarist. Unfortunatly for our bada** guitar playing friend, people took offence to his title. So once day, after a gig he decided to drop the middle two letters and just shorten it to 'bass'. Corny eh?
