Does casting multiple votes make my vote choice more or less important than casting a single vote? How do I quantify the effect of casting multiple votes on the balance of the results, and my power as a voter? I am a bass player, and I am not smart enough to figure this out. Shop smart, shop S-Mart.
I don't know about the rest of you, but I always try to surround myself with dumber, uglier musicians with inferior instruments.
The other musicians still get all the attention and the credit, though. Still working on that...
You sound suspiciously like you may be.... butthurt. Are you SURE you're a bass player?
You ever notice when the band is all one gender except for the lead singer.....

On my way home from work, I bought an entire pint of German Chocolate Cake ice cream at Baskin Robbins. Does that answer your inquiry?
Everyone in that band has totally awesome hair.
In some cases being invisible makes you the best looking person in the band.
I was always told I was the best looking in the band. I believed it...... so there goes the being smart part.
Why are bassists always the smartest and best looking people in the band?
All those cringeworthy, dorky and un-funny memes on the various Bass-oriented FB groups would suggest otherwise
Because we are next to guitarists and drummers so it isn’t hard to achieve that appearance even if it isn’t true.
Gallien-Kruger effect. Zing! I got a million of m!
I know right. Like Jay Leno. Not a killer talent like Jeff Beck, but good enough to land a job that allows him to indulge his true passion. He was an auto mechanic (Mercedes I think) before he got into show biz.
Doesn't work in my band. The drummer is the pretty boy, but I think I might have him on smarts......
Because I play bass
As far as I've come to experience, saxophonists are, right next to guitarists, the kind of people who will do and especially BUY anything in order to improve their sound except to actually practice and work on their skills. Endless discussions about mouthpieces, reeds, ligatures (refer to the power ring posted above).
Ask me how I know...
This why I don't spend time on sax forums. I have the same sax and mouthpiece since the early 1980's. I am from the era when sax players sounded like men. Don't get me started. Lolololol
Why are drummers over-weight and guitar players have bad skin, one of those freaks of nature I guess. ... Though I did hear, once, of a balding bassist but, I'm not too sure exactly what happened to him. He might have switched to keyboards, a good stationary instrument.
I’d forego any and all future gig coin to charity or even to the rest of my band if they’d let me gig in cargo shorts and sandals ....
I’ll agree with the previous post about us generally being the “biggest” ones in the band.
