it kinda amazing the amount of people you see at my school carrying cheap strat copies. its kinda weird to see that everyone seems to want to play guitar and not bass. but then again it does mean that if i want to be a pro bassist i am more likely to get a job. Is this observation just me and my weird school or has anyone else noticed it? i think we have about 10-15 bassist in our school (maybe less) and definatly over 30 guitarists.
