When talking about Metallica's bass lines my 8th grade math teacher said "Bass is so easy, it's just, dum-dum-dum-dum"


I almost bitch-slapped her.

well, i've heard some guy complain about breaking a Low E(guitar), while my brother had recently broken a Low B(bass).

also, a girl in my class spelled bass wrong.

also, once I brought a 5string to school and this guy says"don't you play that lke a guitar"with chords, i assumed.

"man bass is so easy, i learned like everything in a week" from some guy who was a back up drummer in a band with an already hella good commited drummer that never touched a bass before two weeks before saying that

"The bassline is so sick. That guy is an awesome bassist"

This kid was talking about Fallout boy- dance, dance when it came on at my job...
Its better to regret the things you did, rather than the things you didnt do.

"dude metallica is black peoople rock"

said to me by the school bigot

*sigh* so many idiots so little time


MASSIVE EDIT : ahem... it just occured to me that the word BASS is in the title....yea...


so on that it would be

"hah, bass is for guitarists who cant shred"

or

"why does his guitar have four strings?"

My mum said my bass sounded better than usual. I was playing my mates epi SG through heavy distortion.
#18
Well mate, i got one that will top that (not really) I was taking off my neck for fun and when i got to one screw it like swung down so the body and neck formed an angle, and one of my musically challenged friends came up and said "Dude that's a bass because the necks bent right?" A sad day for bassist everywhere.

"bass isin't even really supposed to be heard."- a freind, after I commented on how i liked how the bass on a recording was more out in front than normal.

"having effects for bass is pointless." -drummer i know.
#22
I've never really had the opportunity to hear dumb comments on electric bass, primairly because where I live actually know about music and ****, and know what the bass is like (even if they listen to hip-hop mostly :P). Seriously I must be in the minority or something when regarding this stuff.

How many people have you heard pronounce it bass like the fish?

I swear I'm going to kidney punch the next person who says it wrong.

So i was like give it here. and i hit the g string and the tuner says e, then im like oh thats weird so i tune the string and hit the d string. the tuner says a, turns out he tuned the strings backwards

Dude my gf said I look good when I play w/ my long guitar hehehe right long guitar
#28
my guitarist replied to me "you taught a guitarist scales?!" after i told him i taught a guitarist scales. but that doestn relaly hav anything to do with the actual bass.

well one time i asked one of my friends if he knew what a bass was, he said its what makes teh thud in his stereo rig.
#29
My Dad: "Bassist's don't need as much skill as a guitarist. They don't get anywhere near as much publicity either." (Summarised down from drunken rant).

Bitch slapped him for the first part but can't really argue with him for the second part.

something along the lines of "accoustic guitars toughen up your fingers much more than basses. Theyre a lot harder to play." No sarcasm.

I also had a friend asking me to be the guitarist in a band she was forming and im like "I dont know anything about guitar" and she was like "YOU HAVE AN IBANEZ GUITAR!" and i spent like 10 minutes explaining its not the same thing and she still didnt get it.

Well mate, i got one that will top that (not really) I was taking off my neck for fun and when i got to one screw it like swung down so the body and neck formed an angle, and one of my musically challenged friends came up and said "Dude that's a bass because the necks bent right?"

thats jsut hilarious. lmao

I know someone that bought a Dave Eden head and an Ashton quadbox. he recently told my younger brother that his quadbox is just as good as the top brands (he specifically said Marshall).

Also, i was in a music store and a group of wannabe's (slightly emo, trying to be punk) picked up a Warwick Vampyre rockbass signed by Paul Grey (Slipknot bassist) and started wanking on about how it was one of the most comfortable basses he's ever seen or played while i was sitting three metres away playing a Warwick Streamer Jazzman. They then realised that they didn't know who the slipknot bassist was (his name was signed, not printed), to which one of them replied "I think it's Joey Jordison, yeah that's it."

......... some people seem to think that Slipknot is comprised of 9 Joey clones.

well, it's not exactly being super stupid like saying "why is that guitar missing two strings" but my friend took my bass, looked at the machine heads and said "man, i can make your knobs look so much prettier"...he made them all symmetrical and then started strumming it

someone told me that a 6 string bass was stupid and pointless. They said basses should only have 4 strings.

"I know why you don't have a girlfriend! You play bass! Learn guitar!"

I wanted to kill that guy, but it was funny, because I'm decent at guitar.

Idiot- "Play Seinfeld."
Me- "I'll play it for you, but it's not going to sound perfect, since it was played on a keyboard."
Idiot- "Wait, aren't a bass and a keyboard the same thing?"
