me and my friends started a band a few monthes ago and since were all childhood friends and we all play great we figured it would work out...

1 month ago i found a girl who can sing absolutly beautiful, a rocker , and not too bad on the eyes...

we joind her to the band and it was working out good, but our bassist has a huge crush on her, and it seems he is always making himself look good infront of her on our expense... and so we keep getting into fights with him, and hes one of those people who always has somthing to say...ermm, so hes a big pain in the a*s , and seems to come to rehersals only whaen the singer comes, which us about once a week, and is always skipping rehersals when she is not coming...

how the hell do i fix up this mess!?

help!

1) Why the hell is she allowed to skip rehearsals? Get her to come to all the practice sessions, even if it's just to sit in. That way he'll at least show up.

2) Might want to talk to her about this. See how she feels.

3) How exactly is it at your expense that he makes himself look better? I mean an example.

So you're all 14/15 in your first band and now the bassist wants to bang the singer! Well first the immaturity is explained by age and his 14 year old pecker wanting to bury itself into the first tight wet hole it can find. Secondly give him two choices, grow up and focus on the music not on her little titties, or find himself another band, got to be pretty cut throat in a band dude if you want it to run smoothly. Good luck!
Peace

1) Alright, I didn't know that. Well, I guess there's no fixing that.

2) I know.

3) Perhaps a taste of his own medicine? Start working him harder, come down on him with more force when he makes a mistake. At least to a point where he gets the message that you aren't to be ****ed with.

Talk to him, privately.
Pull him aside maybe during one of the lessons, and tell him what he's doing, and how it's affecting all of you, if he continues, just ****ing kick him.
#13
my idea works. or you can bang her and get close to her and make him jealous and get into a fist fight and kick his a$$. then jack his wallet then complete the ak-47 job

You guys are best friends and he is treating you like this? Or is he the dominant one in the friendship and you guys just cant admit it?
Your band for one, will not go anywhere if he behaves like this, what if the singer leaves?
Your friendship will not get any better, you guys are like his bitches if you guys let him do whatever he wants.
Simply speak to him privately(in person), making sure the timing is right, and that will find you your solution.

This guy is right. A singer is more important than a bass player anyway. It might seem tough but if 1 person has to go, it will have to be your bass player.

Bass players are definitely more important than vocals. If you don't have the bass line going, the music will sound like utter sh!t. It's one of those things where (if you're playing root notes) it's not quite noticed much, but if you take it away you'll want it back immediately. Therefore bass>vocals. And i say you use the AK idea, so I don't get a warning.

Ultimatum.

Focus on the music and shut up, or find another band.

Bassplayers dont need to show off to look good

Tell him to stop being an ass, straight up say he is affecting the band with his attitude and that he better get laid asap so he will stop bringing his hornyness to band practice.

If that fails, find another. It will benefit your band in the long run.

True, since he play the easiest instrument he should at least be able to look good. Otherwise he's a jerk.

Come down harder on your bassist. Tell him if he doesn't attend rehersals, he's out the band. When he makes a mistake, come down harder on him. It'll put pressure on him. T

Oh no you didnt *click* *click* *neck waggle*


Theres attitude right there!

Bass has many different sorts of levels to it. Although many people believe it to be easier than guitar, it depends what level you take it to. Many people use guitars as playing the root note with the 5th and the octave, otherwise known as a glorified beginner bass player. You can keep going up making comparisons between the two, and when you reach the top level, you will find the bass will always equal the guitar. Using the same amount of skill, generally what you can do on guitar, you can do on bass as well.

However, being as this is not what the thread is asking, I will leave it there

Just talk to him about it, explain how you feel, if its easier, get the other people in the band [but not the singer] to come with you. If you can't resolve it by talking to him, kick him out.

Peace
#38
He sounds like a total dickhead. The band won't work if you let this keep going, so just kick him out. If that girl likes him, kick her out too. If she doesn't, kick the bassist out and point and laugh. If he isn't crying within 3 seconds, kick him in the head until he does. Believe me, it will feel good seeing how cool he looks in front of her after that.

So basically, what I'm saying is, kick his ass. If that's physically impossible for you to do, hire some hobos. Or, that AK-47 guy posting here.
you will fight death as you slowly realize...

Wait, how does he look better by making fun of you? Secondly, if your best friend is like this... Maybe you should indeed do the AK47 trick, only on yourself and not on him since it looks like your life sucks anyway?

its quite simple..
if he's an average bassist, kick him out and get a new one
if he's the one who writes all the music then you're screwed
