    The black sabbath thread reminded me of classic scene in Wayne's World, the employee stops Wayne mid-shred and points to the sign in the music shop that says, "No Stairway To Heaven."

    If you owned a music store, what would be on your "forbidden" list of songs?

    Let the contempt flow!

    A sure fire way to be banned for life from Bass Central:

    Play the RHCP version of "Higher Ground".


    ...oh, and first we beat you strenuously with a lead-filled rubber hose for subjecting us to that torture.

    :mad:



    That said, we do get a low incidence of wankage here...thankfully...must be cuz there's no guitarists around to irritate us.

    :p

    Nothing, I'd use one of those rooms with the semi soundproof glass doors for people to check out gear. Then they can play whatever makes them comfortable w/o annoying me.

    Back in my day-
    No "Smoke On The Water"
    ...and many bass wannabes(like me) were the guilty ones.

    It took a little more talent back then to pull off "Stairway".
