So, do you live up to the bass player stereotype "Bassists get the most chicks?"

    I'm too old for that stuff, but back in the day it was true because:

    1) Singer already had 2 or more fighting over him before the gig even started.
    2) Lead guitar player is so arrogant it is obvious from 50 feet away.
    3) Long neck of the bass is really symbolic of other long stuff.
    4) If you play finger style, it IS noticed how quickly and accurately you can manipulate things with those fingers.
    5) New admiring fans really wanna be with the drummer, but it takes him 10 times longer to pack up his gear after the gig. Bass gear is packed and hauled very quickly.

    But I'm too old for that now...

    I never got the most, but I've always been one who steals the best.

    It's quality over quantity in this bass player's book.
     
  14. i think i get the most chicks in the band, not that thats really saying much, because i get practically no chicks, they talk to me though.
    i figure this is because im the only member of the band thats not in a relationship of some kind..

    Besides, I thought the stereotype was that the lead singer gets all the girls?...

    i'm not kidding -I always end up with the chick singer whether I want to or not. Other than that I have no game.
     
  20. Well there's only 2 issues with that stereotype for me...
    One - I'd have to turn lesbian...
    Two - I'm married to the drummer...

    ;)
