Well, I play the bass and I would like to join.
My bass is a Squier Jazz bass, Satin Pewter Metallic and it's kickin ass. I realy don't mind havin what a lot of people would consider a cheap bass because the pant job is AWSOME, and I love the jazz bass sound and it's neck. I'm currently tring to play slap, I can play it more o less, but not like Les Claypool.
My favorite bass player is Cliff Buron, I think he's THE best bassist to ever exist, such a shame he died cuz he onl played a short time and yet became a legend. Most people are gonna say :"OH BUT ALL HE DOES IS USE DISTOTION HE'S NOT THAT GOOD LOL" cuz they don't know shit about him, not saying noone knows about him but that there's too many people sucin' Mike Dirnt's small hairless dick. Thts one thing that pisses me off, Precision-pick players, people who don't kow shit about the bass and veen less about sound. I do not know what is the obsesion with the precision bass, most people just use cuz thats the only thing they see in MTV and they can't afford to chose another bass despite the millions they make cuz they got their heads to far up their asses to figure out that there is more than it. Most people use fender cuz thats the only brand that exist for them
Don't get me wrong, I love fenders, but when you make millions, why can you use AT LEAST an American Deluxe? And thats why we got so many suck bassists. I hate the poeple that try to look as if they know a lot just by saying that Flea's good. What's so special and unique about him?What?Because he jumps while playing?Because he looks good doing so? People that woship(worship, not just like) are ussually the ones who don't kow who Les Claypool is, he's a 100000000000000000 times better than Flea, AT EVERYTHING. Usually the people who say flea rocks are ht eones who don't know who Billy Sheehan is either. Man, I'm fucking tired of hearing Mark Hoppus, Mike Dirnt and everything that has to do with precision basses.
Precision basses suck ass, BIG FUCKING HUGE TIME. They're heavy, the neck's are SUPER uncomfortable and they don;'t have any sound, the only precison bass player I respect is Steve Harris because apart from the fact that he doesn' have his head up his ass and he uses n American series precision,uses flat wond strings and plays with his fingers,HE NOWS HOW TO PLAY. Why not get a Jazz Bass, trust me wannabees, you'll like the sound, thats why I bought it, because I didn't wanna be one of the millon losers that had a precision.Man sorry I' repeatingmy anger but I just want to get this off my chest cuz it really annoys me. Another pik player I respect is Chris #2 from Anti-Flag, cuz he rocks.
Well anyways I'm planning on modifying my bass, put some vintage pickups,pick cover, pickguard etc. and buy a distortion pedal, and a Monster Bass Intrument cable. Again I'm sorry for this sudden critique but it truly bugs me and I hope there's more bassist on the future who can play. Also I don't plan to look like I know everything about the bass.
