I know i'm going to get flamed for this but just hear me out first.


I don't see why alot of bassists are whining and crying about how underappreciated they are?like come on that is not 100% true.I dont see why they think everyone is turning there heads away from them and spiting on there talent and ect.

To me i don't think bassists have the right to be crying that much about how underappreciated they i think the drummer,and keyboardist,volinist,the dj(nu metal ,slipknot and techno) ,classical guitar and others have the right to complain alot cause they are more underappreciated than the bass.

I don't don't know why i'm going to put up a poll cause we all know what the out come is going to be "your stupid","your thread is a fail"....the normal Ug replies

Just go a head and flame me cause i know some of you are not going to read it .

What's that, homeless orphan? You're cold and hungry? Well you don't have the right to complain; there are kids in Africa who have AIDS as well as your sorry situation! Shut the fuck up!

Im a bassist and i dont really feel under appreciated. Just because im not the center of attention doesnt mean i dont get noticed at all.

I somehow understand that, but remember there are some bassists that have to sit there and play boring root notes.
#16
good bassists are definately not underappreciated.

Grow up.

I actually haven't seen any posts about bassists not being appreciated or anything. When I'm writing a song the bass line is often the highlight for me, if not the drums.

EDIT: "I'm on the fence for this" I'm not sure if this is agreeing with you, or disagreeing.

you are an idiot, anyone who doesnt play an instrument knows what a eletric guitar and drums are but not bass. I think that pretty much explains how underappritiated they are.

I must add that "grow up" isn't the best comeback for all insults, no matter how stupid they are.

a really good bassist essentially can make or break a band. a good bassist keeps the rhythm going and acts as a transition between drums and guitar. i think really if you have a good bassist the bassist is the most important part of a band (at least thats how it is for me cause the bass player i jam with has been playing for 6 years and is good as hell) now me i've picked up bass and just play the root notes and stuff and if thats all a bass player is doing then really there's nothing special about that.

your an idiot bass is used in more music guitar SO STFU...no one knows what a bass guitar is....that because some"hip hop" people dont know what a bass guitar is means they are underappreciated
#24
Pft, drums are way more appreciated then bass players. Most non-musicians can't even pick out a bassline from a song, unless they listen to a lot of music.

it is not a comeback smart ass it is a fact they need to learn.

i agree, the drummer and keyboardist are always easy to hear but never talked about,the bassist often just does the bass part of the guitar, so you don't hear the difference, unless you play music by the chills or queens of the stoneage

no when someone doesnt know what an instrument it it cant be appritiated, DUH!?

and drums and guitar are more widely recognised than bass although bass is in just about every pop song you hear.

also where im from about 80% of people aged 14-20 dont have a clue what a bass is what it looks or even sounds like.

You're racist.

You don't like bass players because they are black.
The all bass players are black jokes are getting annoying already


Bass players keep the songs moving. They are very important in one guitar bands

Show me a post where someone on this forum has said 'I'm treated really badly and under appreciated because nobody respects bass or realises its real value'.

Someone made a thread stating the exact same thing in the bass forum a while ago, it turned into a big argument, two people ended up banned. Me being one >_>
If you want to say stuff like that, don't. You knew it would annoy people.
