It seems that there are many more female bass players than there are female guitar players. Why do you think this is?

The resonant frequency of the clitoris is too low for the guitar players to take care of.

Because its easier to start off right away. Most of the girl bassist just play root notes.

I don't really understand why basses have 24 frets, I mean, I've never seen a bassist playing more than the 12 fret.

Because it's easier and they don'T have to worry about hitting on girls (oh well...) and look badass
(easier in sense of playing root notes...i really haven't seen a single girl slapping and popping..)
1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

Probably because bass is easier to learn and play in a band setting. But I think it is purely coincidental

I actually know more female guitarists than bass players.

I played guitar and then ended up taking up bass later on. I always loved deep tones in music. And honestly--I find it easier to play guitar than bass, but more satisfying to play bass.

Out of all the bass players I know personally, only two are girls...and they both play upright, I don't think either of them have even ever touched a bass guitar before.

women are the same species as men. Suspect they have same reasons for playing bass. I play bass primarily because I'm a rhythm junkie, I've also loved the sound ever since I heard those early Motown basslines and I don't have the sort of ego that needs to be up front I'm comfortable in the engine room. Aren't all bass players a bit like that?

Well, my personal guess is that they simply love those low tones.

Barry White is a good example. What chick doesn't like it? :P
#24
Because there aren't enough bass players all together.

Also, i feel like alot of guys play more guitar than bass and with girls it's 50/50. So they just get noticed more.

The resonant frequency of the clitoris is too low for the guitar players to take care of. Isn't it 33hz for a 120lb woman?

...I used to have a couch rigged up with vibrating transducers that went to the music/movie/game in place of a subwoofer. The young women of my dormitory kept requesting I play bass-heavy music for some reason.

That's my sexually inappropriate utterance for the day... what are the odds it ended up in the bass forum instead of the pit?
#26
Here's the real reason:

In the 60s Jimi Hendrix turned the guitar from a normal instrument into a 6-stringed **** to wanked off in order jizz hot squealing notes all over the audiences faces.

For some reason, girls do not have the urge to do so.

Also, despite prefering bass guitars, every male bassist dreams of doing an almighty power metal solo in front of millions of adoring fans.

Sig'd. It's that good.


But also, having that couch is an awesome-yet-kind-of-creepy idea. I may have to try it.

The bass is/can be an overall more sensual instrument than the guitar, not only in looks and feel and sound, but playing style. Plus, they're the foundation for many bands.

You know that old saying "behind every good man is a good woman?"

"Behind every good guitar player is a good bass player?"

Eh?
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
