Everyone got a friend that plays bass, well maybe not, I know its hard for a lot of you to meet people from your mom's basement / your doomsday bunker / or prison cell.


So you might not be able to relate.


That being said;

I love watching his vids...he's got a quirky sense of humor and...well, he can play the hell out of a bass.

Still better than being the drummer.

As a bass player myself, I can definitely sympathize! Even better is when I'm playing my upright bass and people ask me about my 'cello'. Who the hell failed 1st grade music class so badly that they don't know the difference between a bass and a cello??? Gah!

I’m a bass player also, and this is pretty funny and accurate.

That’s ok though, I figure it takes a strong mind and solid self confidence to be the consistently over looked member of the band.

On the flip side guitar players are a dime a dozen, so it’s easier to get gigs as a bassist..

Take bass out of your favorite songs and see if they still sound good... not including that one Metallica album ... 😂🤣

We all tease the bass, but imo if you don't have a kickbutt bass player you don't have a kickbutt band.

I'm a kick ass bass player and without me, no one would be dancing at my band's gigs 😀😀

One I heard the other day- How to upset a bass player - tell them you have detuned one of their strings, but don't tell them which one.

What's the definition of a half-step? Two upright bass players playing in unison!

Q How many bass players does it take to change a lightbulb?

A Three. One to hold the lightbulb and two to drink until the room starts to spin.

My personal favorite -

Q: How do you get the bass player off your front porch?
A: Pay him for the pizza.

I used to piss off my drummer with this one-

Q: How many drummers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: None - they have a machine that can do that now.

I can tune my guitar one octave lower and confine myself to the bottom 4 strings, replicating anything out of a bass or, if I feel lazy, I can use the octave down setting on my Sub N Up octave pedal (or run it through a multi effect processor using two separate amps and end up with the dual effect of bass plus lead simultaneously, which sounds pretty damn decent.)

I like the bass, but it's sort of like buying a Blu-Ray player when you already own an Xbox One.

If you want to see true disappointment, take a foreign bass player tourist into a Bass Pro Shop. They run the entire gauntlet of grief in seconds, right in front of your eyes.

Paul McCartney played the bass. Argument over. Also who can really say Entwistle and Deacon from Queen weren't legends. Anyone who knocks bass or drummers just doesn't get music. They probably cream themselves over Lady Beiber.

McCartney married a one legged woman so his judgement is immediately in question.

A large-breasted model when he was like 60. Dude knows exactly what he's doing.
