    So in Agust my friend was selling a cheap 91 Vista Strat Copy for 90$. I bought it. I Play it when i watch Tv But i don't have a amp for my poor little red guitar. Does this make me a bad Bass Player?

    Don't feel bad, I've been playing bass for the past 7 years and a few months ago i bought a cheapie acoustic guitar to mess around on. I alter between standard guitar tuning and straight 4ths. That's all

    what!?



    what are you talking about!? i love dr. pepper, but one day i bought a coke, does that make me racist against dr. pepper? i don't see why in the world that, buying a guitar and playing it would make you a bad bass player man.
     
  4. Though we give alot of bass players who play guitar alot of guff, its all in love. You are definately not a bad bass player for wanting to dink around on the guitar, if anything it makes you a better bassist or atleast a better overall musician. I mess around on the acoustic guitar, trumpet and keyboard from time to time too.

    No, it makes you a bad guitar player. If you take to "practicing" your bass in front of the t.v. - that will make you a bad bass player.

    My Dad Yelled at me when I bought. He said something about "why can't you buy Video games Instead? You waste your money all the time. I thought you liked Bass"
    I said "I don't like video games! Its my money! I worked for it myself! I like music!"
    I just thought to ask the qustion now.

    My parents say whenever people make comments to them about how many basses i have, the amount i've spent etc that there are far worse things i could be spending money on. :cool:

    Very true! I quit drinking 13 years ago, and everytime I want to buy equipment I tell my wife, at least I'm not spending it on booze :p It's kind of like a reward or something.


    Yeah man, play guitar all you want, it may come in handy for song writing.
