Alright, I thought this might be fun. Game is simple, I ask a bass (or music) related question and you answer it. After you answer it, you ask a question and keep it going.

For example, Me: ''What is the common name for a bass with split-coil pickups?"

You: ''A P-bass! Who played bass for x band on x album?" and so on and so on.

Also, if the person who answers the question gets it wrong, the person who responds after them can correct them.


I'll start this off with a simple one, Who played bass for the band Weather Report in the late 1970's?
