    Hey, I'm really into Saves the Day at the moment, I cant play any of it, because it's too damn confusing.

    oh yeah..........


  5. Welcome to TB Grunge. Yeah Rock till Death and all that good stuff.

    One thing I had to learn the hard way when I got here was, and I quote "Watch which forum you post your questions in". Basses Forum (the one you posted on) is for talk about basses themselves. You should have posted this in Miscellaneous Forum or something else.

    Personally I don't care where you post and I'm not busting your chops or anything, but alot of the Moderators and Senior Members here get absolutely ANAL about posting in the wrong forum cause then they have to move it, and boy do they HATE to move. :p

    Just some advice to you buddy...to avoid the insults and anger of the "empowered" ones. Hey man, I've been playing less than you and I'm 20. 3 years is pretty good, but sometimes it takes many more years to get where you wanna be with the bass. Just keep at it and don't lose faith. Have fun with the tabs you can find here and absorb some knowledge from the older guys who've been playing for 100 years ;) :D

    Personally I love listening to and playing Classic Rock, Blues, Jazz, Funk and Reggae. You should try listening to all different types of music and see what you like. I never in my wildest dreams would belive that I'd be listening to Jazz when I was younger, and look at me now...love the stuff.

    See y'all in the funny papers

    Well, sorry to be so "ANAL", but we have different forums here for different subjects. Would lumping everything all together into one but forum make it easier to find what you are looking for??:rolleyes:

    Sorry if we are too strict for you.

    And by the way, welcome Grunge.:)

    This is in the wrong forum, by the way (as was already pointed out to you).

    Moved to MISC.

    Definitely Matt Freeman, from Operation Ivy, and now Rancid. He is unbeleivably talented! If you've ever listened to Maxwell Murder by Rancid, I think you'd understand.
  11. Just out of sheer curiosity. Is it harder to sing while playing the bass compared to playing the guitar? Because Ive never played the bass before and I've never seen any bassist sing.

    Cheers ;)

    Ever hear of this small band called The Who
    Or maybe another small one called Iron Maiden ???
    I mean, I know that not many people have heard of these bands, but they have awesome bassists and they sing while playing...Yep, another example is Les Claypool/Primus...there's probably a million others out here.....
    [sarcastic voice OFF]
  14. the answer is it depends. as I may see while reading your name you're maybe a fan of simple pop punk, in this case it's very very very easy to sing while playing. Most average bassist could even old a conversation while playing that kind of music.

    well, it can be easier on bass, as long as the bass pasrt is easy, or very repetitive, and requires little thought. and how could you forget pink floyd!?!?!
