    So, i've spent the past half an hour looking for a thread for people who play Bass and since i couldn't find any (probably due to the fact that there's an incredibly small amount of us compared to other instruments) i thought "I'll make my own, why not?" So here it is. Anyone have a favourite bassist or song to play??

    Might as well show my face :cool: Been playing for nearly 18 months, so nowhere near good :rolleyes:

    Currently working my way through Cage the Elephant's first album. It's a good mix of easy songs, difficult songs (for me at least) and is quite satisfying.

    Favourite song to play? Point/Counterpoint by Streetlight :love:

    :hi: Been playing about 3 years and I'm not very good at all but I enjoy it and that's what matters, right?

    Really like playing the chili peppers and muse. Rancid has some pretty fun songs to play too.

    Been playing 8 years. Going to treat myself to a Fender American Deluxe Jazz or a Marcus Miller Jazz after I finish uni, I think.

    I play a bit here and there, used to be in a band back in my teenage years. Now at the grand old age of 21 I don't play nearly as much as I ought to, but I enjoy the odd session now and again.

    Fear Of Music by Talking Heads is a sublime album to play on bass.
