    No chicks?

    Trust me, if you think you're not getting chicks because you're a bass player, it's not because you're a bass player.

    (and it's not your haircut, either, right lump?)

    Have you read some of the bass player jokes:

    "How many bassists does it take to change a lightbulb? One, but nobody notices."

    Jokes like these are funny because they're true -- they're TRUE!

    I'd notice if Les Claypool or Geddy Lee were changing a lightbulb. Well actually, all bass players pay attention to a bands bass player. I think it's so they can say, "Ha, that guys got nothing on me," or "I could do that but I don't want to".

    i stick out like a sore thumb in crowds so naturally I get all the chicks hitting on me. But do I notice the signals? NO !! But it's the thought that counts.

    Maybe it's because you aren't good looking.
     
  11. And if its a 5er, well.....

    I need a cigarette.
     
  12. I've notcied the thing about singers too. They get all the credit and all the attention but what they do is the easiest thing in the whole band. Anyone can sing

    Just let the ladies sit on your cab(s) and they will dig you.
     
  14. Need some help identifying the signals?
    This might help a wee bit... :p

    As far as getting chicks go, all they do is compare the length of the guitarist's neck to...Oh, I'm married anyway. I got more chicks when I used to shave my head and wear a high and tight. I prefer to get beer over chicks at this point in my life. My daughter is my only groupie.

    Well, she's only 14 months old and her favorite past-time is to rearrange my CD collection and dance around the room while I practice. She doesn't show at gigs though; she has to get up too early to stay out with dad. :cool:
     
  18. Hey Ben,

    You'ev managed to get on the internet and even to talkbass.com, so there's gotta be a "." somewhere on that keyboard of yours. Send me $8 for my accelerated "Punctuation and Me" program. ;)

    ben - The Pacman couldn't be more right. Jeez, after my first gig, a school talent show in 8th grade, the first girl back into the classroom asked me if I liked her. She had never given me the time of day before that.

    From that point on, the rest is history. :D

    What are you wearing onstage mah man? Clothes make the man, sad but often true. You're not dressing like that goof Beastie on "Bands on the Run" are you? That guy dresses for the stage like he's going to get a new muffler, not playing for an audience.

    And when you're onstage, do you project some personality? Smile, frown, grit your teeth, do something. Just don't look like your waiting for the bus.
