    I was just wondering if there were any other bassists on the forum


    if so, and I know this is an odd question - are you big into slap bass? I personally can't stand it, I can do it just fine but it sounds crap imho

    my baby looks like this:

    yes, i play bass. i have one beat up Peavy that with the most bright pick ups (they're not active pick ups--i hate the way active pick ups sound). the bass is perfect because the action and tension are perfect, it sounds wonderful, but the body is so beat up, i feel totally fine playing those packed basement shows that get rowdy. best combination.

    i also have double bass (stand up) which is equally beat up. i used this when playing at the park. it has the deep sound, but i got it all cheap and beat the fuck up, i don't need to worry about keeping it all nice.

    i play guitar too. got a problem fucker?

    I play both...but I'm way better at guitar.
    In fact I'm so rusty I should just say that I'm mediocre on guitar and don't play bass at all.

    mmm bass... i can play slap bass as well.. but for some reason, when i do, it doesn't sound funky at all.. it sounds more mellowed out and sad... oh well... i like to play more sad chorus sounding bass anyway..

    hey Kaes, what's your jazz name? I mean, do they call you 'Fuzzy' or 'The Bottom Line' or anything like that yet? Or are you 'The Blunted Wonder' on-stage as well?
