    I am a graphic designer and make plenty of t-shirts. For my latest creations i am looking for the biggest, baddest, most confusing, bass oriented line i can find. Some sentence that that only hardcore bassists would understand. Know what i mean? Hope so, let me know if you have anything or you know where else i can hunt, cheers yall.

    Really appreciate any responces.

    Hm, off the top off my head:

    The Chromatic Fantasy arrangement by Jaco (esp. the last part).

    Dixie looks more difficult, but Chromatic Fantasy is a better sounding song IMO.

    At 1am-3am on a main road, go and draw chalk outlines of people at a main intersection (I'm talking 20 or 30 people) Then sit back and watch.

    "Bassists do it with both fingers."

    "Bass players don't die, they just smell like it."

    Front: "How can you tell when a bassist is playing out of tune?"

    Back: "His fingers are moving."

    The second and third ones show that we do have a sense of humor about what we do, and the first one is nice because it's an innuendo. Or as I often say, "In-you-end.....ohhhh!" :D
     
  14. bass players have longer wood!!!

    :eek:
