If you could have a supernatural bass playing ability, what would it be?

  1. Bass never goes out of tune, your amp magically EQs it's self to any tone you want, switch from rounds to flats with a push of a button, never get fatigued, etc.

    And the ability to control the entire rooms sound to make it consistent . . . and Eq'd to be great (i.e. bass heavy).

    Oh and have full control of my voice (I'd have to train to do backing vocals :ninja:).

    Being able to play a whole lot better would be useful.

    Although I could definitely learn more or "fix" more about myself...

    My ultimate bass "superpower" would be the ability to put a band together with players that can actually play, who do their homework at HOME, are not complete knuckleheads (clean version), that get along, show up consistantly and on time, that don't fool around with anyones girl other than their own, and write well together. After all that (the impossible dream) the rest doesn't really matter! :hyper:

    The ability to make bar patrons step aside graciously, and not get upset because I'm hauling equipment in their direction - even though it is they who are blocking the way to or from the stage...

    It would be mad skillz.
