Guys, Most of my family, relatives and friends rarely know what a bass does. For them notion of a guitar means strumming to songs as shown in the movies or playing guitar solos like rock stars. So when they see my bass in the house, ask me to play and I play a bass line, they just seem perplexed and question why its not sounding like a guitar? After many instances like this, I am reluctant to even play when they ask. If you were popped that question, what would you generally play? Apologies if I posted in the incorrect sub forum.
