Do you play guitar or bass, wanna talk about techniches or gear? here is the place..:)

I play guitar and bass, I have a Shine Stratocaster electric guitar and a Yamaha RBX 270j bass, but soon I'm getting an Ibanez SAS36FM electric guitar.

I'm really having a hard time trying to do pinch harmonics, anyone know any video tutorials?

I play the Bass Guitar. I'm not to keen on Acoustic Guitars. Besides my little sisters has the Acoustic Guitar and I have the Bass Guitar. Seems kind of fair except I got the more expensive thing.

neither are more fun than eachother...

way to suck.

if you play bass, its alot easier to get into bands because the demand is high and the skill level needed usually isnt that high.

guitar, its the other way around. there are way to many crappy guitarists and even good ones, so its hard to get into a band even if your good.

imo ive played in many bands, and they seem to always accept any bass player possible, and will only maybe take a pretty good guitarist.

besides dream theater (bassist wanted to take a break) what bassist has ever been kicked out of a band?

well i guess you win at that, but i really meant small bands.

good bass players are hard to find.

thats why the world lacks bass solos.

That Ibanez is gorgeous - I've been looking at the RG 321, but am just a bit wary of the build quality (this one is Malaysian).

You can't been Wooten for a bass solo, but most of the stuff he does is too percussive for me, barely any tone in it.

I just got my Ibanez SAS36FM today, I've been playing it today, but I've put it away till christmas now..:)

Do want, that's amazing. My story is the same deal as Slayer's.

And bass is awesome. If you listen to lots of rock, and strip the bass, it becomes absolutely horrible.

It doesn't just look gorgeous, it sounds gorgeous too..As soon as I started playing, I was like, "Mmmmmm...", I nearly started crying when I had to put it away until Christmas..:(

That Ibanez is pretty nice, I think I saw that model in SoundControl when I was buying my Ibanez..

Cliff Burton was(:() a good bassist, pity he got crushed by a bus..Here's a compilation of solos from him, http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=6O9zMnwD65Q&...feature=related

Yeah, that's probably the problem with the popularity of bass. Bass is well used in styles like funk or altern rock, but when it comes to genres like hard rock or metal, the more brutal the less you hear the bass. There are even songs that don't have any bass at all. And in the end, imho guitar solos are waaaay more impressive than the bass ones.

Most of the kids play guitar these days, looking at some bands in my school, people have more problem finding a vocal (and you don't need to know anything to sing) than finding a guitar player, while on the other hand there aren't almost any drummers/bass players so they're happy if they can find anyone, and really anyone.

So much Ibanez talk in here, lol. My dad used to own one.. twice. The same one. Did have a custom Telecaster (which was really nice).. but now it's down to I think an 80's Japanese Strat and a mid 90's PRS. Beautiful guitars, I don't play them, though. Been meaning to pick up bass for a.. long time now, but unless I'm just handed one I doubt that'll happen.

I can describe my Bass Guitar but I don't have an actual Picture of it. Like I said I prefer Bass.

My Bass Guitar is black and has a white area underneath the strings. It has a Volume Knob and a Bass Knob which are both Silver. The strings like any normal Bass Guitar are Silver and are metal. The top end of the Bass is Light Wood.

Bass Guitar and Guitar are as fun as each other in my opinion. Bass Guitars have Tabs and Electric Guitars have something I can't Remember.

Bass Guitar is quite easy to learn but I guess its me that I find Guitar (Normal) hard to understand.
