Title for book about the bass player

Discussion in 'Bass Humor & Gig Stories [BG]' started by bigcardinal, Dec 15, 2005.


  1. If there was a book writen about the role/importance of the bass player in the band or in music in general, what would its title be? Here are some of my suggestions:

    "The Invisible Musician"

    "Thumper: The Bass Player and the Damage Done"

    "The Bass Player: The Glue that Holds the Guitarist Down"

    ...um, as you can tell, this is not too serious! Lets here some titles.

    The Bassist who wouldn't post in the right forum

    Frets are for weeny guitarists
    Scales less than 30" are for weeny guitarists
    String smaller than 0.030" are for weeny guitarists
    Wideneck basses aren't for weeny guitarists
    We don't need no effects to sound good, unlike weeny guitarists


    That kinda covers it I think ;)
