    When you’re predictive text options look like this. I don’t even own a Sadowsky.

    You love being the heart beat of the band and you know most of the crowd is moving to you and the drummers rythm section. The singer and guitar players would be floundering on stage without your un-appreciated foundation.
    I’m a bottom dweller and love it! Ha!

    You’re the only one that can successfully set up the PA and when something goes wrong you fix it while the rest of the band stands around with their hands in their pockets.

    You're the first one to a gig even though you have the shortest personal setup routine.

    When you go to a gig as audience, you're the only one to strike up a conversation with bass player between sets.
