The most underestimated, but most awesome and coolest sounding instrument in a rock band. The reason people degrade bassists is because it looks easy. infact its not.. the best bassists make it look easy. Guitarists are usually seen cooler than the bassists. But anyone who says that bassists are failed guitarist should probably get brutally beaten up..
I chose to play bass because its more fun, sounds cooler, and is also more harder to master than guitar.
basses were very large and were from orchestras until the 1950's when someone was actually smart enough to make an electric bass which is much smaller
