My band really needs a bassist. And nobody around here plays, to my knowledge.

I understand that this section of the country is a pretty stagnant breeding ground for musicians, but there's gotta be that one chunk of granite in the pond water somewhere here...

Oh, DON'T use a knife. It cuts through your strings. I did that once, thinking, its the Low E, its invincible. Turns out, its not...

Learn bass yourself? Obviously not the most suited option, but it seems to be the only one you realistically have. Roger Manganelli started off playing guitar, now he's my favorite bassist... probably ever.
