You know you're a bassist when...

You walk to the park in Em.
You are cooler than a guitarist, smarter than a drummer, and a better singer than the singer.
You utilize slap technique to win thumb wrestling.
Your songs are posted on the refrigerator. Next to the guitarists baby pictures, and the Pizza Hut magnet.
The word 'Gibson' makes you shudder.

Follow suit!

You know you're a bassist when nobody notices you unless you're not there!!!
You know you're a bassist when you have been replaced with a mini fridge in the jam space!!!

You know you're a bassist when you can poke holes on your fingertips.
You know you're a bassist when you play the guitar like the bass (index-middle)
You know you're a bassist when you actually know the names of the notes, and know how to play them.
Eh Lol

This forum really isn't what it used to be though.

of course it isn't. everyone's older, gone, and the newness has worn off for many of us who were once learning and spreading what we learned to others.

I resent the remark about shuddering at the mention of Gibson.

Anyway.

Predictable, but totally understandable and justified...


You know you're a bassist when you shake hands with the left so you can cripple the other guy's hand with your brand new 0.45 strings trained fingers.

When people ask why is your rig is bigger than the guitarists.

That actually made me LOL hard.

you know you're a bassist when you jam with anyone and get to make their senseless random note playing an actual hearable thing, and make them feel they can play and sound good...

You know you are the bassist when:

-You write the guitarists parts on top of your own
-Can sing better than your singer
-Made this band what it is!
-Get no recognition for it
#33
when your amp is ten times the watts of your guitarist yet you still get over powerd

You know you're a bassist when people say you're too loud simply because they can hear you.

You know you're a bassist when you can pick out the bass lines in almost any song, ever. When your guitarist has to buy a 150 watt tube head to keep up with your rig.

when you can put out cigarretes with your fingertips.

Absolutely this.

You are cooler than the guitarist because slapping works better on your instrument.
You are comfortable with your penis size so it doesn't matter that you're not up front shredding solos.
