    I see these all the time on Craigslist. From what I've seen, it's usually it's aimed a particular ad or person and not all bass players. I like the part where it says "no gigs withing 500 feet of a playground".

    You guys seem pretty positive that it's a joke.
    I'm not so sure.......
    it sounds an awful lot like many posts in the band management forum.

    It could very well be a TB'er who is ready to get out of their bedroom and "make it big".

    He's really limiting himself. Last time I checked, E was the money note.... or at least it seems that way when I watch people try and slap and pop at the guitar store.

    ^ then by that logic.... just playing h,i,and j should be the quickest path to an early retirement.
  9. Ei. I saw this on CL. A couple days later our lead guitarist shows it to me right after I butchered root and third quarter notes in the studio for 40 minutes (how many times can you miss a chord change? dozens). The next day my gf sent it to me saying that she liked my ad. And now it's here too!

    I do Em! Good luck getting me to play root notes on Bm but this isn't me.
  10. At least he knows what he is worth... in his mind at least. Brave attempt, I might say.
  11. E? Nahope! Dude is based in NASHVILLE, so it's country chords G, C, D. Might be able to play some bluegrass as well. Doubtful dude slaps and pops his bass, but...

    The "No gigs within 500 yards of schools, parks or playgrounds" clause indicate that not only is the dude a "pocket" player, as claimed, but also a "pocket pool player".

    Hmm, never used "dude" so much and so loosely before...

    "... whale like a bandshe..." (sic). What an outstanding young man. The industry would have him nicely medicated and 100% under their control in no time if he happened to win that lottery.
