So do u people prefer to be a bassist who is flashy playing or not? I am just a layed back kind of guy who doesn't like to play flashy unless it would be necessary(which is never ) its just nothing i prefer. I just like to get the line down and play it and interact with the crowd we play with. not just stand there and try to play something that is a pain in the ass that you cant play and have fun at the same time. so are u a flashy bassist?
