    The chorus effect was invented in ancient Egypt which is why it's named after their god Horus.

    That's a good one!

    The first synthesizer was invented by Richard Wright in 1824 when he was partially successful in his attempt to create a time machine.

    It only worked as a time displacement device once propelling him to the year 1962, where the machine suffered a slight malfunction rendering it only effective at making squeeky noises thereafter.

    The first guitar was chewed out of maple...by a badger. The strings were pasta. It was fretless and had 2 strings tuned in 5ths.

    We all knew that though.

    I own a very rare bass guitar built by Leo Fender when he traveled back in time to the middle ages in order to "get back to basics" as he put it.

    I don't have any pictures as it is currently stuck in a worm hole where cameras don't seem to function.

  8. If you say "Sid Vicious" while looking into a mirror during a full moon at midnight....

    ...you'll lose all your musical ability onstage.

    If the gui**** downtunes, the bassist has to as well. Even if playing a 5-er.

    Women secretly love black metal.

    The A&R guy is your friend.

  10. For a while I worried about Phase Cancellation, but I grew out of that.
  11. Your band's version of Mustang Sally is the *best* I've ever heard.

    That's not a thumb rest; it's a toothguard for those teeth-playing moments.

    Your awesomeness is directly proportional to the amount of flowers on your brightly colored shirt.

  14. Before they formed the band Kiss, Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley, and Peter Criss were "ghost" players on the Beatles albums, since the Beatles themselves weren't capable of playing the parts themselves.

    I own the one and only best bass for metal, and it's very light
  19. Stanley Clark played all the bass parts on Victor Wootten's "Show Of Hands", while Victor Wooten played all of Marcus Millers parts on "Suddenly". Roger Waters was the bassist on "School Days"

    If you play fretless, the fingerboard cant have lines or else everybody will think you're a total noob. A lined fingerboard also effects the tone because, science has proven it.
