I'm going to play guitar with a friend of mine this afternoon but he only has one guitar amp but he also has a bass amp. Now my question is if its possible I could play my guitar through the bass amp with out damaging the amp etc ? Also I will be using a Overdrive pedal I don't know if this could damage the bass amp ?

No. The amp isn't designed for that, so it just will not work at all. You can try and plug two guitars into the one amp(i've done it with my mates 15w gibson practice amp before) however i think there's only certain amps this works on

i don't know, i'm playing my guitar through a behringer Bass-Amp with a DOD-Overdrive and i don't have any problems. you just need to find the right EQ-settings.
i don't think it'll destroy the amp. as far as i know, the amp gets only damaged the other way around, playing a bass through a guitar amp.

The bass amp he has is actually of a friend of him so I'm a bit worried that I will damage the amp and that would be **** so.

yeah, it wont kill it i actually quite like the clean sound on it, however it turned to total crap once i turned on my distortion pedal.

You can play guitar through a bass amp, no problem. Many people do that usually, look at Queens of the Stone Age, they have a quite personal tone. It's just a matter of knowing how to do it.

Yeah, you should be able to do it. My mate plays his Strat through a massive bass amp, and he gets a pretty rockin' tone. Kinda like early Kyuss at times.

^ Yeah, that's it. That kind of tone kicks ass, but well, you'll need a good bass amp and know how to EQ to sound good.

You wont hurt it.
It's when you play a bass throught a guitar amp - that's what you have to worry about.

I did it for years, no problems. Could get flabby at high volume but with an od (if it's a tube bass amp) to tighten things up, you would be fine.

Just gonna throw this out there:

Not trying to be a dick but seriously, there's one or two of these a week, and the answer's go ahead and do it, it'll be fine
