alright. think about the name 'Bass'. what do you notice? well. obviously, it plays in bass cleft. and obviously its low. but what else?
heres what i found:
-B is the string that bass stops at (i. e, guitar has it, bass doesnt)
-bass is four letters, bass has four strings traditionaly
-low b is exclusive to 5 sting basses
- Bass rhymes with alot and its a RHYTM instrument, traditionaly.


what do you think? post your ideas

Don't the notes on the bass clef spell out "Face"?

No that's treble clef, andyou're thinking of imbetween the staffs. For bass clef it's ACEG.

Also the guitar has a low B as well as bass' do, they're just not as common.

Okay, I'm not a regular here in the bass forum, so I'm not too sure it's a good idea to critisize someone like this, but what the hell.

Guitar starts with a G. G is the highest string on a bass.

-bass is four letters, bass has four strings traditionaly

Guitar = 6 letters, 6 strings.

-low b is exclusive to 5 sting basses

Do you not know what a 7-sting guitar is?

- Bass rhymes with alot and its a RHYTM instrument, traditionaly.

Umm...face? Race? Place, grace, trace, so what? And what does that have to do with anything?

Don't get me wrong, if I had a bass, I'd more than likely be a bassist. I'm not saying, "Bass sucks. Guitar pwns you," but seriously, why did you need to tell everyone this? Most bassists already think that bass is the best instrument in the world.

Well if you don't believe you are playing the best instrument in the world, then why don't you take up what you think IS the best. Your statement makes no sense.

UNLESS you're saying that bassist are cocky, stuck up, and infernior. And in that case join the rest of the idiot guitar army.

Better he make up a pointless thread, rather than killing hookers or something. I guess.

that like saying you invented a type of carpet thats entirely custard-proof, it may well be true for all we know but until you manage to show it's relevant or useful in any way, shape or form, no one gives a fuck.

a 1/4 of weed will cost me £35 (friend prices), so about $70usd



A little more expensive here in good ol' northamptonshire, around £20 for an eighth. Though there was a drought a few months ago where it went up to £25-£30, but bleh.

Interestingly, this awesome local band got raided for possession with intent to supply cops confiscated all his money, bastards.
