Ok me and my brother are 15, were twins. I play bass he plays guitar. He is really good at guitar too, he plays Hendrix solos, Clapton solos, etc at the right speed and barely screws up. One time my friends came over to watch a movie and we both played guitar for them. I did Metallica's Anesthesia and He did Hendrix's Wind Cries Mary. Now Anesthesia is not easy, it took me about a month to learn it. My friends were like yeah your brother is good and you're ok. What the hell? They think that just because I don't play as fast as a guitar or play chords that I'm not good, and I try to esplain that Bass Playing is about technique and not speed and they still don't understand. Why don't bass players get the credit they deserve?
