Yes, sadly, it's true. All us guitarists are insanely jealous of bassists. It's a secret we've all been keeping too long. That would be.....if only our god, buckethead, did not exist! That's your plan, isn't that right, you bassists?! Going back in time to destroy buckethead? Bah, foiled your devious plan will be!

Do violinists pick on contrabassists like this?

I'm a bassist.

I do not enjoy Victor Wooten's material. Everything I have heard sounds very un-musical, and I dislike his tone.
Honestly, I would rather listen to an amazing guitar solo, than listen to most bass solos.
The basses role is mostly to bind rhythm and melody, and keep the whole band grooving as a whole entity. If you can pull off insane lead lines, thats great, just do it right, and keep the groove going.
#23
bass elitists and guitar elitists are both retarted

both intruments have their purpose, and are needed

I myself play both, but i play bass in my band
As a bassist, yea we have to take alot of **** compared to guitarists. But being a bass elitist isnt any better, in fact its hypocritical

my advice, stop giving a **** and just play your instrument

do you know why we diss bass?

because it has less strings than a guitar in most cases, you normally play one pathetic string at a time, and you manage to come up with threads that only get flamed..

conclusion: GUITAR!!!>>>>(bass)

!! zone out and relax to BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM you say?? yeah... NO. its like trying to mellow out while getting ass raped.

Yaeh elite bassists have their moments. I like bass most of the time, but guitars can get way sicker and cooler tones than any bass I've heard. Besides if we really want the low tone of a bass we'll just throw are lows up and drop the tuning like Korn. As well bass is mainly for rythym. If you show me a really cool bass solo or fill like Flea of the Chili Peppers than hats of to you, but not many bassists are that good so just settle down and play your role.

you are a closeminded d*ck

go away

guitar is a great instrument
but bass is essential in nearly every genre of music
and if you pay attention at all you can see how versatile of an instrument it is.
its far from just BOOM BOOM BOOM

... i am already aware of the importance of bass. its that the thread is pointless, and i'm trying to make my point that threads declearing something that is not going to change, will be flamed.

and i'm not a di*k.

ok...yes, these type of threads are ghey.
bass is a cool instrument.
guitar is a cool instrument.
all instruments are cool in my opinion. i play guitar and bass. i like both.
bass elitists are almost more dumb than guitar elitists. both suck. end of story.
#33
if you check i also dismissed the thread, as arguements like this are stupid.
Bass and Guitar are two unique instruments and shouldnt be compared like this

but saying things like ZOMG it gotz less strings so it must be easier is stupid
also "guitar>>bass"
and "its all BOOM BOOM BOOM"

EDIT: to nickelbitch

It was hard to tell she was being sarcastic in her first post, but she told you in her second post that she just said it to make a point.

Wow, that statement was truly idiotic. Not EVERY bassist plays root notes and stands at the back of the stage. Usually it's just the ****ty ones that do that. Stop basing your opinions of a whole group of musicians on the bassists you generally hear in pop punk/emo bands and be more open-minded. Jesus christ.

Wait a minute, why the hell am I even arguing in here? These threads just turn into pointless flame-fests, and one side can never get the other to see it from their perspective. This entire thing is pointless.
