One of the most underestemated instruments in a band. Although some bands would sound alright without the bass (AC/DC) others would sound like complete and utter shit (Metallica, Rob Zombie). The bass seems easy to pick up and play, which in a few cases it is, but it takes much more time to master than a guitar does. This is because the bass has much thicker strings and a longer neck and frets.
Myths about the bass:
1.Because it has fewer strings,the bass is easier to play.
I have a 5-string bass (1 less string than a guitar for stupid people) and an acoustic guitar. I like playing bass more and, to me, the acoustic guitar is easier to play than the bass
2.The bass isn't an important instrument in a band.
Look at the difinition, retard.
3.Since I play guitar I can play bass also.
No, no you can't, shutup. Bass and guitar are very different, and because u can play both, doesn't NESSESARILY mean you can play both.
I was actually in this conversation.
(Dumb guitarist): Since you hear the guitar more in a song, its more important, you know?
(Me):Are you fucking stupid? Youve been playing guitar for 3 days because you want to look cool and because I play bass guitar so you wanna prove your better. And every1 that you ask says I'm better.
(Dumb guitarist): Dude I can play Iron Man and this is just my 3rd day.
(Me): No, you can play 14 notes of Iron Man, and you still mess up while switching frets.
(Dumb guitarist): Whats a fret?
(Me): -_- Jesus Fucking Christ.....
