    The smartest guy would be smart enough to not claim to be the smartest guy.

    You would certainly never see me claiming to be the smartest guy.

    Isn’t that like being valedictorian of summer school?

    It’s a forum for bass players. The bar is set pretty low to begin with, sooo...

    "smartest" is an ambiguous term.....can you define "smartest" as specifically as you can, than we can more accurately measure folks against that criteria:)

    The first rule of "smartest guy" is that whoever self-nominates as smartest guy is not the smartest guy.

    Who is axtman? (With all due respect.) Honestly! I've been with TB for 12 years and I've never seen or read any of his threads or posts.

    Smartest person on TalkBass? Be more specific. Double Bass? Electric bass guitar? Music theory? Luthier? Electronics? Smart arse remarks?

    There is no smartest person on TalkBass. Everything is relative.

    The smartest person on TB is probably practicing right now.

    It seems like folks who consider themselves the smartest here on TB usually end up in “time out”.

    Not me.

    But, I will say. I've gotten some pretty sage advice here from too many users to mention.

    TB is a great resource for real.

    People who never make waves are not those that move things ahead in this world.
