    So I was asked the other day as to what instrument I played and I responded "I play the bass guitar".

    The guy answered saying "Oh so you don't play a real guitar".

    I just laughed and said whatever dude.

    LOL. Was the guy a guitarist? Or just a little clueless? Or both?? :)

    I think I will say, "I play electric bass."

    Then again, some will think that means a plug-in upright...
  3. Here's what you shoulda done to him..........

    When someone asks me what I play, my reply is: "I play a REAL MAN'S guitar. The bass. Why you gotta problem with it/ You motherf#@*^*#!?" Well, maybe I'm exaggerating a little about my replies. :p BUT. I do feel like giving a smart-assed reply similar to that when someone make a stupid, uneducated remark like that. I'm thinkin',"Grow a friggin' brain, man!" when people make such corny-assed remarks like the OP's.

    "Oh no, those real guitarists are a dime a dozen. I play bass, that's the one that's in demand."
