Easy, keep being a dick. Then you'll turn everyone away. The easiest way to piss off a bassist is to be a self righteous prick with a guitar and tell them how to write their basslines.

well we could just use whammy pedals or detune a lot.. or is that too much?

Wow. Not funny at all. It would be funnier if it were calling someone (bass players?) cheap. But really, rock/metal music wouldnt be nearly as good without bass players. Just look at the Fall of Troy, Cliff-era Metallica, Mudvayne, The Strokes, or a ton more bands. And without bass, Jazz wouldnt be nearly as good, either.

you could tell them to stop using a practice guitar and buy a real one. if that doesnt confuse them that should anger them.

I'm a bass player, but can't we just lighten up a bit? We've got our share of guitarist jokes too...

C'mon bassists, you guys know that we're jealous that you make heavy stuff heavier and funky stuff funkier. We just have to take cheap shots at your instrument to make ourselves feel better

The point wasn't necessarily that bass players are useless. It seems more like no one would notice a bass player who possessed a great talent for his instrument which is really true bass players aren't appreciated the way they should be. Either way i got a good laugh and sent my bassist the link .

As a person who fluctuates between lead guitar and bass, I can say that one really does not sound good without the other. A lot of people SHOULD all get off their guitar high, but bassists shouldn't be so touchy about it.

i wouldn't mind giving up a dollar to be the world's greatest bass player that would be sick

Be quiet guys. Everyone knows that we guitarists are jealous because Bass Players can play notes low enough to pleasure a woman. And they finger better.

Are you bassists happy now?

The fact that you're trying to piss of bass players is more annoying than the cartoon.

the fact that its a joke makes it funny.
#37
Shiiit.
I have seen tons of guitarists, but nothing is as entertaining as watching my girlfriend slap.
#38
I love how people are actually getting mad. I'm a bassist too, but I can appreciate a bass joke every now and then
#39
I play both guitar and bass, and thought it was funny. Like The-Joker said bass players are usally overlooked even though without them alot of the great music would suck without theme.

Think about it this way, the common man will know who Jimi Hendrix is, but would have no clue who Victor Wooten is.

Not funny, I'm a guitarist who occassionally plays Bass and I highly respect that instrument. IMHO, advanced Bass is HARDER than advanced Guitar, so I see no reason to diss Bassists. Apparently it has become "cool" on UG to diss them.


Dont get my wrong, I chuckled a bit when I first read it, but we really dont need to be telling as many Bassist jokes as we do, I seem them left-and-right.
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.
