Ouch! That's harsh.
I say put a bass in that guy's hands and say "oh yeah?" And then watch him flail around.
I play guitar too, but bass is so much more challenging in many respects, IMO.
I wonder what that guitar player would think when his/her bassist stops playing during their favorite great guitar solo, and it's all thin like tin?
Oh wait...that won't work: they don't listen to anybody but themselves anyways!
what a dork.
we should track him down and inform his bassist of that comment...lessee how long that geet lasts with a bass rammed up his gerbilcage.
Haha, I don't want any death threats on this guy, I just thought i'd share the ignorance... or arrogance... (they go hand in hand*.)
*What song is that from?!?!?!
Anyways, I would like to see him play a 6 string bass, let alone a 4 string (i'm not mocking your 4 stringers, but I mean, his guitar has 6 strings, i'm sure he can play a 6 string bass! )
In most bands I play keyboards, so I get to see what goes on with the bassist. In one group there was a really good bassist, but he was unappreciated. So he didn't show up two times, and that really got people to appreciate having a bassist.
Ignorance and prejudice and fear go hand in hand
Witch Hunt, Rush's Moving Pictures album.
Can I threaten him with death anyway? I like watching people who don't know I wouldn't hurt a fly quail in fear
please don't misunderstand. i wasn't giving a death threat; just offering a different kind of sex toy...
ps...it would be a conk GT-7, so it would 'love him long time'.
Isn´t that "holier than thou" by Metallia??
Well get ahold of his bass player, tell him/her about it - and tell the bass player to change the key down a half step during a guitar solo... and if the guitar player catches onto it, keep changing the key. Oh, or just have the bass player ride the tritone for a whole solo... that usually will piss off a guitar player.
Maybe he will appreciate what a bass player 'thinks'
Or, just stop entirely under his solo. In the past, I've generally been the band "leader". If I knew people wern't paying attention to me, or just doing something wrong, I just stop playing. They almost always noticed right away that something was missing. Especially since when I would stop, I'd get the drummer to as well. Then be like "Oh, we didn't think you needed a rythm section, since you're acting like an [insert whatever here]". Works like a charm!
This is true.
And that would be a good idea about tuning down!
stupid ego trips...
Actually, the ironic part is he simply made himself look like an ass...
lol, if someone says that to you, you should go over to his amp during a show, and "accidentally" unplug him during a solo, then play something awesome while he's trying to figure out what happened. If he get's pissed after a show, you should then say "I'm a bass player, I'm too stupid to know what I did"
That'd piss him/her off real bad.
I'd also wither quit the band, or fire him.
I hate flashy guitar players, too many of them out there.
Makes me happy the people I play with respect bass (heck, I'm teaching my friend to play it...kinda).
Oh well, when they realize that bassists are needed...thats probably when they realize hte good ones are taken.
