: Hello everybody!There are so many cool people that post on this site,i'd like to ask you all something.
: I play bass for one reason:i love it so!Being able to express your musical voice,and seeing people enjoy it,is just about the best thing there is.Have you guys ever noticed that there seems to be a lot of bad mouthing,and conceitedness in the music world?The "i'm better than you,and the you suck attitude"seems to preveil,sadly,way way too much.
: If more people truly played for the love of it,and learned to stick together(cause sometimes this business can suck),i think we would all be better off.
: Well,to all my bass playing brothers,peace.I would eventually like to sit down with other bassists,like guitar players always do!Let you all now how it goes.
: Lets all keep the faith,and keep groovin'!!
Hey Tim! How's the fishing? I know what you mean about the attitude thing....some people leave us no choice but to bite our tongues or flame back. I think this thing is especially partial to bass, not only bass, but there are so few of us that many bassists live in a bubble. what I mean is that if you are a "good" player and you don't live in or around a city chances are you may be the "local" bass guru. And you may not be used to people disagreeing with you or heaven forbid knowing more than you. Then they get on the net run into a few disagreements and instead of learning something from another player or peacefully disagreeing, they get very defensive. Of course this is just a theory......peace ........how bout we meet for a nice box lunch!!!!!!!!hehe
