Everything. Just blow everyone away.


EDIT: By the way, I've never even heard of a bass off until now.

I'm not sure why, though.

We should start a support group.

I had one with my friend about a month after I started. I ended up playing the intro to NIB (the only actual song I knew at the time) really fast.

I would try something like (Anethesia) Pulling Teeth by Metallica, or some other song that sound hard.

I've got a few Muse songs down at full speed, some Death Cab For Cutie, and some Vampire Weekend. There's alot of other stuff that I know, but It's mostly crappy root note stuff.

If your gonna do somthing as lame as a bass off, you should improv alot of it......

Take the high road and tell him your above all that melodrama.

One, it shows you are bit more mature and two it will irritate him more in the long run. Pissing contests are as attractive as they sound.

Get over it. Don't let a little asswipe bother you so much.


Agreed. If your going to have a bass off have it on friendly terms and just for the fun of it, not for UBER REVENGE and total demolition of some jackass who was talking behind your back. Get over it, you will have plenty of people talk behind your back.

It's not like a bass off gets UBER REVENGE and afflicts total demolition anyways... it's like watching a retard trying to f*ck a doorknob.

I really need to get into chat more often....

And to the TS..if you are serious and despite the advice, want to go forward with your slug fest, there's always that sticky about songs to learn. But really, you're so much better than that and will follow our advice..right?

I agree that bass offs are only to be used for good. But, they are fun in a friendly enviroment. You're already doing it though, so start off with happy birthday. He'll be very confused.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Pfft...

What's with all the "no don't do it, music isn't about competition" bull****? Music is as much about HAVING FUN as it is about creativity and art. + he already said he'd do it so there's really no turning back if he doesn't want to be called a wimp

Nothing impresses people more when you play a cool head-bopping little tune and say "oh it's just something I wrote the other night". I also suggest to mix it up, give it variety. Throw in a little slap-n-pop, a little tapping. Basically show him all your trumps, give him the best you got but DON'T get all Wooten on his ass and start wanking. Seriously, you'll only impress other wankers with that.

I have the perfect solution:
Play a 'C' whole note.
Then descend in a major scale, when each note is a quarter note.
While descending, sing the notes aswell, with those words:
"You're - an - ass - hole".
If you want that extra 'wow' feeling keep singing the "hole" for two whole bars.

No need to thank me .

But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

OMG we have the same avatar. Also, if you have to do the bloody thing (don't), then impro it, do some slap with a wah, or just three-finger the **** out of the minor pentatonic until you realise the tools you both look.
