Might be because guitar players find basses easier to play sometimes, and bassists find guitar more difficult?

Only answer i could really give for that

i am bored, but i hear of more people changing to bass rather than guitar, maybe it is just me. If you play a bass properly it is not easier, cos you are playing lead all the time, in a way. Specially when youi get to funk and are playing a bassline with 5ths etcetc...

i think it is just you cause i only hear of drummers going guitar and not much else..

when someone plays bass we fall in love with it and feel no need to change to guitar

duh!
#11
Many of the bass players I know just have giant fingers and can't physically play a guitar.
leave me alone, please.

how come you hear of guitarists becoming bass players but hardly ever hear of bass players becoming guitarists?


I think its cause guitar is harder to play than bass. Bass players mostly repeat notes about 3 times before they switch to a new note where as guitarists have more expectations (solos etc). Look at the smells like teen spirit tab for bass. Most bass tabs are like that, yet there are a few hard ones out there, but bass tabs can never become close as hard a guitar tabs.

So if you were a bass player why would you switch to the harder guitar when you can get fame playing a four stringed bass?

It depends what music you play. I started out on bass, and a few months in started guitar because I had a new love for playing music. I've only stuck to playing rhythm though, and taken a more complicated route on bass.
Once you pick up a bass, there's no going back
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Bass players are just failed guitarists.

Drummers become guitarists because they realise that guitar is awesome, and better than drumming in every way.

I started off playing bass, and now I play guitar...

I don't know if I'm a minority or what, I just find guitar more interesting to play.

Before you bassists come in here trying to rape me, that's in my opinion; so nurr.
#19
I was a bassist turned guitarist ^o) it's mainly because people learn to play guitar before they learn to play bass, some people jut learn bass quicker, iknow i sure did...

A lot of them used to play drums...Van Halen, Dimebag, Jim Marshall (not a guitarist, but an important man in the guitar society). My guitar teacher used to be a drummist, too.

I think Dan Hawkins used to be a bassist.
