I don't really play guitar, I own one and used to play quite a lot but I'm not really into it these days. Not that I play bass much more. I've never played a gig, just parties and stuff.

But he asked in the bass forum so let's assume the question is :

How many of you bassists also play guitar and can you play it well?

I consider a party a legit gig, maybe you're not getting paid for it but it ain't about the money, I would play a gig if there was no pay (eg. a party) unless I was touring or something then I probably wouldn't, gotta cover expenses.

Great thread you've got here


i cant play guitar...too many strings...i cant count how many strings a guitar has let alone play one! 4 is my limit i think. 4 strings and root notes. sometimes ill play with a pick to make it look more like im playing a guitar...but i know its a lie. god i wish i could play guitar! id have such a killer solo, just like herman li! but for now, ill stick to my main setlist which consists of AC/DC songs lets me work on my killer skills. i dont even know how people can play without guitars, how do you know what root notes to play?

anyways...this is dumb. just go to the next page of threads, i think theres a thread like this there...

stoopid and i hate you TS and i wish for you to never ask these questions again.

Also, I play "professionally" because I've been paid to play bass. yes i can live off of this, no i dont want to.
My name is Greg, use it.



I also play guitar, in a couple of bad metalcore bands. I would say I'm a better than average rhythm player and a bad lead player.

I want, so badly, to be a professional musician. Until then, my CVs will continue to clog up Burger Kings/McDonalds everywhere.

I'm the guitar player in my band. I love playing acoustic, and electric is a great outlet for me, but bass is still where its at and one day i will get to actually play it in a band setting

...one day.
no sir away a papaya war is on
I "play" acoustic and electric guitar (among many other things O_O) yeah. But I prefer bass, ofcourse
I wouldn't say I play guitar anymore. I have an acoustic that's gathering dust in the corner, but I think its been almost 5 years or so since I've picked it up.

I do play the guitar, but that's for my own stuff. I play bass in a band for a living.

I played guitar in various bands for about 10 years. I still play guitar at home. I was a competent rhythm guitarist in a few alt/punk/ska bands.
I play basic acoustic guitar, chords and the like.

But I'm a bassist at heart.
I started out playing both guitar and bass but bass is my main instrument in my band work.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!
Play both. Been paid for playing both. Bass moreso however.

These days that is extremely hard. None of the local professional musicians I know are able to do this. My bass teacher, who get calls out for gigs and recording all the time still has to do roofing once a week to keep his head above water.
