okay, so my new school year started today, and i had music on my time table because i was hoping to learn theory, then i remember i cant play anyhting exept electric bass, i thought damn, i wont be able to play it for the class. so the teacher asks me "Dylan, what instrument are you going to play?" "i only know how to play bass guitar" "okay, thats perfect" then someone in the flute section had the gall to pipe up and say "bass, HAH that isnt even a real instrument, you probly suck at it anyway" :scowl: this girl was totally slamming me, and most importantly bass in general. now i felt like belting some comments about her flute, but, i didnt want to let myself become so low that i would insult a tool of art. now im wondering, do you think bass, guitar and to a lesser extent drum players recieve more feedback to how good/bad/"talentless" they are because the bar has been set so high by bands and professional musicians in the mainstream, and to how they arnt real instruments if they are popular at all? im interested to see what everyones opinion on this is.
