    These are two things that I'm always complimented on. I'm nineteen years old, a Freshman in college, and am often confused for 22-23 because of my goatee and the way I present myself. Almost all are dumbfounded when they realize I'm as young as I am.

    When I work bass for hire, it's arrive early, have EVERYTHING I need, know what I need ahead of time, bring all the gear needed, and extra for the gui****s and drummers.

    I did a nude photo shoot yesterday, completely professional. Girl there with ginormous knockers and she offered me a feel. I declined because I was there for one reason and one reason only, helping out. She's a friend.

    What are the compliments you guys get most?

    I get remarks about how: "you don't look your age". I think: "gee, so many years, how little I've done".

    Oooh, I get that one too. All about Old Spice and Irish Spring. Chicks dig it.
     
  10. I often get complimented on my maturity (I'm 18), and my work... my boss can never get over how much I get done so quickly.

    And also, I get the "you smell nice" from chicks a lot, and strangely enough I use Old Spice and Irish Spring too! I've been told "it's better than AXE"

    I'm still waiting on my pictures...


    Not many people believe i can fix so many things at my age. I am 21, but have done a lot of construcion, and i am really into electronics as well.

    Very true, but if you're looking just to freshen up really quickly... Tag's Lucky Day spray blends in nicely with these two scents.

    Old Spice and Irish Spring here, too. Best combo for getting the flocks of chicks.

    Nope, I usually get called out on being arrogant.

    Except for the few who think I'm modest...

    Modesty is a great indicator of maturity to me - as you learn more, you learn how much you don't know and how much you have to learn...

    My experience has been that arrogance comes from ignorance and immaturity - i.e. not knowing how insignificant you are in the overall scheme of things and how little you know in reality....:meh:

    The wisest and most experienced musicians I have met, have been very humble, very giving and entirely without arrogance - the worst have been the opposite .....:eyebrow:
     
  17. "I love your bass sound, so deep and powerful, but with just the right amount of mids, especially in the 2.5khz region, and top-end clarity".

    get that all the time.
    chicks love the tone.

    Looks, body, smell, maturity, 'skills' (not to toot my own horn, but i'm a natural with pretty much everything i've done. I've picked up music, sports, cars/mechanics, construction/building, electronics, basic art etc, schooling/education really easy), I get complimented on my playing quite a bit, for being tight, holding everything in the pocket and the occasional 'show'.. and bedroom antics (or is that a skill? =P).
