Thesaurus for bass guitar

Synonyms, antonyms, and related words for bass guitar

A misunderstood and underestimated instrument. Some retards with no musical sense think that a bass player is a lesser form than a guitar player but they don't realise that in many songs, a guitar would sound very shitty without the bass. Same goes for the guitar, a bass sounds... boring without a guitar. The two go hand in hand, whether added synthetically or actually played. I am a bassist and I have never layed hands on a guitar, they just don't interest me. So alot of bassists aren't failed guitarist. I chose to be a bassist because I love the sound and have an appreciation for its importance.

A type of music characterized by it's cacophonous wall of sound and accelerated tempo which is achieved through distorted electric guitars playing fast-paced riffs, with the driving drumbeat often utilizing hypersonic double bass rhythms and emphasizing the continuous pumping action, the bass guitar is often playing similar to the guitar, but more with the drums, so as to add to the overall heavyness and depth. It can manifest in many different forms and the spectrum of intensity is usually quite varied. From slow and heavy melodic grooves, to complex and precise blinding rhythms, odd time changes, and sheer brutality.. metal comes in many shapes and sizes. One common trait of metal is to have vocals dealing with dark subject matter, often sung with anger, aggression, and conviction in the form of screaming. Melodic smooth vocals are also accepted. Solos are an integral part of metal music, as the icing on the cake to complement the heavy intensity of the songs and add more depth and individuality. Real metal has a solo in every song, usually scales and arpeggios played with some changes often in 8th, 16th, or 32nd notes..if only a few quick licks. Metal is progressive and dynamic, and usually provokes feelings that are therapeutic to the listener. Metal is rock music that has evolved.

Another term for a double bass, acoustic bass, or bass fiddle. It's the largest of the string instruments (resembling a giant violin) and lowest-sounding instrument found in an orchestra. Can be played with a bow or plucked with the fingers. The word "upright" means that it is to be played while standing up while holding the instrument upright, as opposed to how a bass guitar is held (on the lap or at a 45 degree angle). Also not to be confused with the cello, which is smaller and played while sitting down.
Paul Chambers and Ron Carter each played the upright bass at one time or another for Miles Davis.
