Once you go without a bass and realize that it actually does contribute to the sound, you'll realize the folly of your ways.

it is a running joke - bass players keep the whole band together and add most of the depth to the sound but aren't often "heard" but yer i'm a bassist and i make more bassist jokes than the rest of the band - it's all cool

EDIT: what did the bassist get on his IQ test?

yeah.. I make jokes about most of my friends abilities at whatever.. even if they're really talented, I'll take the piss..


That's what we in the business call "being a douche bag"
It pays surprisingly well

Try playing Hysteria by Muse without the bass. Not gonna happen.

I'm not a bass player but if you have that lack of respect for anyone then your kind of an idiot and don't deserve to even have a band.

hahah gotta tell our bassist that.

bass is actually the foundation of your sound and is very important. But that doesnt mean you cant give them crap for playing 2 less strings than you do.

Wtf? Bass players aren't the least important member of the band... and no, my band doesn't give my bass player crap.

bass jokes make me laugh

its kinda like making fun of someone for being jewish or gay. i'm not racist but i'll laugh at a good racial/ethnic joke. you can't expect someone to take it the right way, on the other hand. they may see it as personal rather than being directed as satirical toward the stereotype itself.

You're band is ****. Ever heard of Sting? Yeah I bet you're better than him. I bet you guys are awesome. I'm surprised you haven't gotten a major record deal yet.

oh.
wait.

Bass is extremely important and sounds really great as long as when he's not just playing the roots of the guitar riff. I've actually talked with a fellow musician for an hour about what would sound coolest for a bassist during a bunch of different songs. We usually setteled on him playing the 3rd, major or minor, to create a chord when the guitarist(s) are playing chords. Though 7ths were occasionally mentioned.
#31
Our bassist kinda sucked, and he was our absolute bitch, just cuz he was the bass player. He took a LOT of ****, and it was fine until he started to cry. Then he ditched the house, and we had to bike after him. (We found out he ditched cuz my drummer yelled down the stairs for him to get his Dr. Scholls insoles.) But he came around, and then we broke up the band a couple weeks later.

Before i took up guitar i played bass for 5 years and the band i was with didn't make jokes for 2 reasons 1 i was smarter than them (probably combined) and 2 i wrote the majority of the material.

Wow guys...he wasn't insulting the bass seriously, he's talking about band members making jokes (fun). I am also a good bassist and I love joining in on the jokes haha.
By reading this magnificently and wonderful, adjective-filled signature, you have just wasted approximately 7 seconds of your life.

i cant really give my bass player crap cuz i sorta made him pick up bass instead of guitar, but at least he likes it. bass can be important too, the player just has to know what hes doing and have a good sense

Hey, how many bass players does it take to change a light bulb?
eh, doesn't really matter--bass players are never in the light anyhow

But seriously, though the bass is an essential part of a band, theres no problem with poking some fun at them occasionally. But at least in my band, the drummer is way easier to make fun of

If he can take the joke, awesome. If he can't, the you've screwed yourself over. Bass is far, far more important than guitar.

If you can't even spell "haven't" correctly, then there is no way you can properly perform and write music. Or what you like to call "music." That and, bass really does matter. In fact it's pretty damn important. I'm guessing you don't know sh*t about theory or anything like that; but even when the bass is just playing root notes to your chords it gives your song a feel of depth, not to mention helping the band stay together.
