whats something a bass can do that guitar cant the only thing i can think of is slapping and popping although he can kinda do that it just sounds like ****

I've never met a guitarist that could.

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.

Why don't you just quit the foreplay and have sex.

Seriously, I can't be bothered with comparing musical penises. It's not productive.

You can sweep on a bass.
Play a bad ass bass line that's just ****ing funky as all hell and then hit him in the face.

Tell him to play a riff that's just bad ass, then you play a bad ass riff as well and then ask him if he could FEEL the music.

Slapping, popping, double thumping and pretty much every guitar technique is possible on bass such as sweeping, tapping, shredding.

Tune your low B string down about 4 steps, plug it in to his guitar amp and hit the note as loud as possible. That can't be good for his amp right?
I'm a guitarist and it would scare the **** out of me if our bassist did that.
