Dunno if this is the right place, but it's a technique in use in Orchestra, so ya... I've talked to lots of Bass players, both Jazz and Classical, and most have said that BS is an critical technique in orchestra. I use it alot, and so do lots of people. I'm 16 and In High School (i hate it) we were at Honors (like good people in the county get together and practice music for a full day (working day), then perform that night) and they decided that they wanted to turn the lights off where we were playing so it was almost all BS. I've also noticed that you can sorta catagorize diffrent kinds of people in diffrent sections ie basses have anal people and really relaxed out going people usually. But seriously, is BS used regularly by bass players?
