    I was thinking the other day that I don't think there's a single thing in life I do better than play bass. I was curious how many people feel the same.

    I know this can get complicated and philisophical (ie. I can speak, breathe, walk probably beter than play bass) but you know what I mean.

    Do you think you're best at bass, sex, carpentry, cooking, billiards, butterfly catching, etc?????

    You know, I kinda agree. Bass is one of my defining characteristics, something that when people ask what I do, I say I play bass(hence the member name). I think bass is one of the things I do really well.

    Hey, could one of the moderators fix the typo in the poll - "tha" to "that". Can't edit the poll for a reason I'm not sure of. Thanks. You can delete this response after the edit also if you want.

  6. Im a skilled bassist, i like to help young and underrated bassist, i teach them technique mostly just because i like it. I don't get any profit or material benefict doing it, but it's feels great!

    Many people know me because of that, but my skills on computers is far more legendary :p

    So, i think im a better computer geek than bass teacher.

    bass, now that i think about it. i might not be that good, don't know, don't care compared to other people, but out of what i do, i guess I am the best at bass, as compared to the rest of the stuff i try.
     
  9. i'm known to most people as "that fat, red haired bass player"

    when i play some of my stuff to people they are normally quite speechless (most of them have never heard REAL bass playing tho) and the more musically experienced people are normally very impresed

    plus i pretty much suck at every thing else so i'll have to say i play bass batter than i do anything else in my life

  10. Much as I'd love to say I play the bass best, most people know me for being a smartass in school, so I guess my intelligence is greater than my musical ability. And even within music, I'm probably better on the piano than the bass.

    I play bass poorly, but I can write. Well enough that I'm being looked at for some college scholarships.
     
  14. Funny enough I'm more comfortable as an artist than I am a musician. :confused:

  16. What I do best is probably something intellectual, but I can't think of it now, ah the irony. I play hockey better than I can play bass, I am better than most people at hockey, though a lot worse than some.
     
  17. what i do best is what i do for a living : computers
     
  18. im one of those looser kids who cant do anything worth while...

    I can be philosphoful, and i cant even spell it, and even that I suck at.. Oh well..

    Life goes on :) :(
