  1. Hey I'm new here and i was wondering if someone could tell me what the most popular music genres around here are, like my other forum was dominated by swedish metal fanatics. So are we punkers or headbangers here or what? :bassist: **** i love that smiley
     
  2. I think there's a wide variety of people here. Personally, I'm mostly a (black/death) metalhead/prog snob, but I really love southern and classic rock. I'm a big redneck at heart :D

    I haven't seen many punkers here at all. I think the crowd here on average is a bit older than most other music-related forums I've been on, so expect lots of jazz/blues and such being discussed.

    Of course, I've only been a member a short while, so these are pretty much first impressions.

    Everything and anything. People like Jaco to bands like "Dr Slam and the Getto Possie". That's what makes Talkbass cooler then anyother bass site!

    P.S. don't say "punk" people will get into arguements :) :) :)

    A variety of people whom having been playing for various times. Some members here have been playing for longer than other have been alive.

    CmdrSmirnoff- There are some "punkers" here, i consider myself one of them, we lay low in the shadows, but none the less, we are here. :ninja:

    EDIT: Oh yeah, by the way, Welcome to TB

    Great question!

    It's like a big community of people that actually talk about interesting things, like music and basses. :) Other people always want to talk about sports or their kids or work or . . . :(

    TB is very diverse, I've learned about all kinds of artists and genres I'd never heard of before.

    Welcome!
     
  13. Wrong Robot, did you get that 'spoony bard' bit from Final Fantasy II? my friend and i laughed our asses off when we first read that!

    Yeah, Final Fantasy II(IV)

    quite possibly the best line from any video game...ever.
     
  15. I dunno... theres one from chrono trigger ive always liked: "Am I a butterfly dreaming im a man... Or a bowling ball dreaming I'm a plate of sashimi?" the randomness is sheer brilliance.
     
  16. I listen to, and play professionally,
    latin
    country
    jazz
    blues
    Irish
    easy listening
    soul
    classic rock

    I dont listen to, or play,
    rap
    metal
    hiphop
    punk

    I guess that makes me the opposite of most guys here, but that's what ya get here...diversity.
