my girl sez "teach me PRIMUS!!!"

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Chad Michael, Oct 5, 2001.

  1. she's never played bass before, she always tells me how good i am, & we love each other dearly.

    so she pops in "seas of cheese" and says "that bass sounds so cool in a bizarre way..."

    she saw primus live and said "les makes it look sooo easy... can't you just teach me here come the bastards? i just want to play that ONE song on bass and that's all"


    i don't know whether to sh!t or go bowling.

    BTW: she's a bit eccentric (if you couldn't guess), & has absolutely no patience whatsoever...

    your thoughts?

    i think i should marry her

    MARRY HER!!! lol, umm, teach it to her, i guess
  3. If she has money tell her that to get the primus sound will require a whole new rig and a new bass for both of you. If she get tired of playing you have yourself some new gear. If she latches on to it even better, I have always wished my wife followed any of her musical dreams
  4. at least she wants to learn an easy primus song... On bass, here come the bastards is either slapping open e, to F (first fret) along in rhythm, or its the chord thing, which is flemco (sp?) strumming a slid up to 7th fret A string (E), to the F, doing a "power chord" That is literaly all there is to it. Just listen to the song for the arrangments.

    dude... if you score cause of me... you owe me one...
  5. BLIMPSCHIZOID: Go Ahead. Try and teach it to her. She'll give up after about fifteen minutes. The worst that could happen is that she'll develope a new respect for you. I know from experience. Same thing happened with my ex-girlfriend. I tried to teach her "Every breath you take" on upright, and she lost interest after a half hour.
    Maybe I should have married her. :(
    Say, you don't suppose....:eek:
    Naw, it couldn't be!!

    Always remember this fact: Someone is only eccentric if they have money. If they don't have money, they're just plain weird! :D
