    Go ahead. Go to Bassists, and tell the people how much you love Feildy. Mention he's better than some guy named Jaco.

    Mwuhahahah :D

    Always ask for TAB, we don't respect people who waste energy trying to figure out songs on their own. It's wastes their time and everyone's around them. And it pisses off the pig, or something like that.


    edit: If you every get the chance, challenge this guy called Ed Fuqua to any theory question, he doesn't know anything and it will make you look good!!!

    You should stick to Hondo basses, and for the love of God ignore me.:D

    edit: you should probably delete this thread and tremble behind the keyboard, in fear of being made an outcast.:D

    Give all your equiptment a name and go down to double bass forum and share with those fun loving guys.

    If you need tabs to ANYTHING, just call on John Turner. He's always willing to help a newbie get started with tabs.

    OK, just to prove how helpful I can be, I will take this seriously and provide a list :

    Don't say:

    Bass is easier than guitar
    Bass player are "failed" guitar players
    Bass just follows the guitar line an octave down
    You don't need bass, the keyboard player can do it
    The Seinfeld theme is a good bass line :)
    Tabs make things easier
    I don't need a teacher
    I don't need to learn music theory
    Nobody wants to hear a bass solo
    You only need 4 strings
    (Insert any brand name) Sucks

    [I'll come back and insert more later when I think of them!]

    I think some of your bastard percentages have sky-rocketed.

    Seriously:

    Search, do a search (top-left of screen) before posting a question, you'll irkify the mods.

    Remember that tabs are found in the frame at the top, don't ask for them here.

    Try to keep an open mind regarding new gear, brands, players, music etc, it can and will help you.

    For the love of God do NOT listen to Blisshead.

    Don't get offended when Chris Fitzgerald screws with your name.
