Wow what a bassist move.
wait, do you play the bass? because that was retarded.
An exception to this rule is Cliff Burton (RIP)
Bassist: It sucks.
Guitarist: Get out of my band.
A lot of players todays are just that.... Players.
bass is the cop out string instrument
My definition is the least paid, least appreciated, most expendable, and least heard person in a band. Bands today don't really need a bassist due to guitar compressions and technology but choose to to make the rest of the band look better, plus its cheaper than buying fancy guitar effects and technology. Take it from someone who THOUGHT bass was cool and wasted 12+ years learning it just to have my recording levels lowered beyond belief and my songs taken credit for.
My opinion on some bassists:
Some bassists try to take control of everything and whine if they dont get their own way. The reason is that because they learn lots of different scales, modes, arpegios etc.. and they think they are musical geniouses because they no all these and try to use them in each note, when really its so easy to play scales on the bass. They dont realise that on guitar scales are far more complex and envolve more technique as well as linking them to even more complex chords etc..
Whiney Bassists need to learn that they are not master musicians just because they no some very simple scales.
2. Im amazing at bass and know everything about music because i can play a blues scale!!
