cause everyone on UG says that bassists have no skill cause you like hit one note. i think bassists are cool.
SATCH FTW!!!
NSW Group FTW!

There's nothing incredibly interesting here.

We don't hate bassists, we despise them. Can't even play a proper number of strings! Might as well play a cardboard box with elastic bands.

Guitarists are just jealous that they can't get down with the slap 'n pop, because everyone knows that slap 'n pop in front of girls leads to slap 'n tickle later in the evening.

I saw a guy doing that to impress the ladies, followed by his string snapping.

But you can do that on guitar...

I always mock bassists, but I don't mean it.. Most music would sound terrible without bass.

Ouwch, that's almost as bad as losing your wood. And yes, I know you can do it on guitar, but it's not as sexy.

Wtf is a bassist?

You mean that guy in the back that nobody likes?



No..
Thats the drummer
The bassist is the guy who nobody knows and believes that he is a stalking groupie..

I think it's only the bassists with no prerequisite skill... that is, playing repetitive notes with a pick =x

so, so true

it's not so much about hating the bassist, as it is liking everyone else (except the drummer) more
#20
Cause they be ungrateful.

Pull a "day without a mexican" bass style, and the world will spontaneously explode.

I don't hate bassists, I just hate the fact that we can't many around here, and when we do, they suck.
#23
because

A) most bassists are actually better guitarists than the guitarists in question
B) guitars aren't in the right octave for the "Orgasm note".
C) theirs is bigger

Sure, there are jokes about bassists and everyone hating them (yes, ahem jokes you say), just as there are jokes about guitarists and their inflated ego. If you are not willing to be satirised and be the subject of jest, then you are a loser. I respect bass, because I played it. I also joke about bass, who the hell cares, I'm sure you can live with it TS.

I don't hate bassists, TS. I used to, but I've learnt to respect them for what they do.

Do elaborate...

ya gotta do bass right. none of this pick playing, root note bull****. some bass players can rip on their instruments better than guitar players. anyone who doesn't respect the power the bass has in a band is either a complete puddle of drool retard, or just in a really ****ty band.
