OK, here's a shameless attempt to get more people posting in Miscellaneous. We all love being bassists and there are certain perks that come with the job. One of my favorites is being in constant demand. Another one is the fact that as a bass player, I'm not just playing a melody or rhythms, but a combination of the two, as well as having a lot of control over the feel of a tune. (playing eigth notes instead of quarter notes makes a tune feel completely diffferent). How about you? What aspect of being a bassist do you particularly enjoy? Will C.
