So being a bass player is now a psychiatric disorder?

    That's the general opinion of most every guitarist I've met.

    Right. "Illustration says it all." They can't articulate anything in words. So they point to a picture.

    In my case the psychiatric disorder came first.., then I started playing bass. You think there is a correlation between crazy and music?

    Hey, we have great attributes. Were steady, we plug things in
    and make them work and... were very good with our hands!
     
  9. I thought drummers were known as "the crazy ones".

    But then, bass is a rhythm instrument, so it's half like drums.

    In short, bass = half crazy = bipolar.

    It's not BEING the bassist... it's being in love WITH a bassist that's the disorder....

    Yes, sounds pretty accurate diagnosis to me... she has to be at least a little crazy...

    I hear that for musicians, there are varying degrees of troublesomeness. The most challenging cases, so they say, are musicians who play instruments with strings.
