Top Definition
1) The often overlooked person in the band, even though they provide melodic stability. He/She may play via plucking, picking, slapping, tapping, or any variation thereof. The bassist may play on a bass guitar with strings numbering from four to twelve (eight, ten, and twelve are harmonics similar to a twelve stringed guitar.) and in tunings ranging from low A to E. The male of this species usually has a larger stature than the rest of the band.

2) The person seen carrying the overly intoxicated guitarist onto the tour bus.

3) The bane of the sound technician.

4) The person that usually stands stage right, not bouncing like an imbecile.
