Hey guys, I'm doing some market research and we at JamPlay want to know how many of you guitarists out there play both the standard guitar (electric or acoustic) and also play the bass guitar.

Please vote in the poll and let us know if you do play both and also if you don't play both.

Thanks everyone!

I also play the salmon and the trout.
There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.

I play both, but guitar is my main instrument.

I started on bass, then quickly moved to lead guitar, but i still play bass from time to time.

Quite a lot of guitarists also play bass, but there aren't many who are brilliant at both.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

I started as a guitarist and later picked up the bass, I play both now.
#21
I don't own a bass, but I play bass with my bands sometimes, and I write some of the basslines that my bassist uses. Does that count?
#22
If you can play one, you can play the other. Get mad bassfags
Check out my band Disturbed

Both. In fact I'd consider bass my main instrument now after strating on guitar.

I've been playing guitar for 11 years and it's and will always be my main instrument, but it's funny that in my band I play bass guitar instead (6 string though, I like to keep the number of strings unchanged )

I played the bass in music class. I wouldn't call myself a bassist but I think pretty much any guitarist can play bass.

lol at bassists who say they play guitar. Everyone knows bassists don't like playing instruments where they can be heard!
#28
the bass is just a guitar without a B or high E string and an octave lower. there are many techniques you need to learn and grow callouses, but in terms of theory and knowledge and how to get around the instrument, if you play guitar, you can play bass too.

I started out playing guitar and after about 6 years of that i Started playing bass as well, and at the moment I'm enjoying the bass much more when playing with a full band. If I'm on my own I'd rather pick up my acoustic guitar.

I play both.

In that I actually play both.
I swear most people who say "I play guitar so I can play bass" would think they could play the Cello merely cos they can make a sound from it.

I play lead guitar in a folk metal band, and fretless bass in a tech death band.

Come at me

I play bass if I have one.

PFFFFFFFFFT, I love when Bassists try to sound mighty when guitarists say they can play bass since they can play guitar.

Next to everything is the same, if you can play guitar very well, and can't play bass at all, you're doing something very very wrong.

You CAN play bass if you're good at guitar, not because "ololol 2 less strings" Because it's the same idea but with more root notes most of the time and the notes are still the same.

I really hope you're trolling. That was an extremely dumb and ignorant statement.

If you play guitar, you do NOT also automatically play bass. I play bass, and I dont say i play guitar. Because guess what? They're completely different. Different mindset, theory, notation, feel, everything. They aren't the same thing.

I've only ever touched a bass twice and I was just dicking around on it both times.
