    "Some bassists try to take control of everything and whine if they dont get their own way. The reason is that because they learn lots of different scales, modes, arpegios etc.. and they think they are musical geniouses because they no all these and try to use them in each note, when really its so easy to play scales on the bass. They dont realise that on guitar scales are far more complex and envolve more technique as well as linking them to even more complex chords etc..
    Whiney Bassists need to learn that they are not master musicians just because they no some very simple scales."


    Atleast I take the fricking time to learn music theory unlike alot of guitarists I know. I hate not being able to communicate with people that have been playing for years but somehow never managed to learn basic (keyword=basic) music theory. They could have it down in a couple of weeks but aren't willing to do any homework.

    "Larry learned how to play an A, E and B on the bass guitar. This was the entire prerequisite for joining a band."

  16. I love this one:
    Someone who plays the bass. There are three kinds of them:
    -Punk/metal bassists. Just like punk guitarists but even more idiot so they can only touch one string at a time.
    -Jazz/funky bassists. People who, along with drummers, should rule the world instead of those corrupt politicians. Everything would be better.
    -The rest. Like punk bassist but they can play a different note every beat.
