    Well so far this has been a successful first thread:bassist: Most of what you all have said is what I guessed but the numbers of them I see and what they are about seemed a little silly:p So I thought it might be a something good to look at:D That you all for your posts and thoughts!

    Suit yourself. I can say the same for the bright and clean sound that is ever so popular... sounds like poo to me.. smiley_shrug.

    op - he's being facetious. the man is a fine connoisseur of effects, sampling many, if not DOZENS, of different pedals daily.

    he can bend space and time with the correct number of pedals on his board turned on at the same time.

    You seem to be contradicting your signature, OP.

    Yep. I've found them pretty helpful when I've had questions about a particular bass or amp maker, or a certain model. And I like to think I've helped a few folks who have posted in the one club thread in which I'm active.

    I agree. It's a good way of organizing a ton of info into neat little piles. Plus, it lets you know where to go if you want to talk about a new bass you got with like-minded players. Why is this important to anyone? I don't know... ask yourself why you bothered to sign up for a message board to talk to other bass players?
  16. People join clubs as yet another vein attempt of achieving a purpose for their short, pointless lives.

  18. IMO, "joining" a club simply gives you the number to put in your sig, kind of like a membership card in your wallet. It's symbolic.

    The more important aspect is "participating." I participate in a lot of clubs that I haven't bothered to formally join (though I have the gear). But going to those threads is interesting and informative to me, and I freely share when I have something to offer.

    "Participation," either sharing or receiving info and support, is the real value of the clubs.
  19. That up there!

    Well, I'm a Mensa member, but that should be obvious since everyone knows I play bass.
