What makes the perfect bassist /mu/?
>>
having a degree from meme school
>>
Looking like a horse
>>
having only 4 strings
not slapping it
not trying to play it like a guitar

basically just do your fucking job and don't try to show off
>>
>>61954462
How does one acquire said degree?
>>
>>61954469

I came in to post basically this
>>
just restring your shit when your old strings are worn out jesus fuck people
>>
being named Brian Gibson, Mike Watt, or David Wm. Sims
>>
Can start playing on "and".
A surprisingly rare skill.
>>
>>61954469
this pretty much. Nothing wrong with 5-string tho, if you're playing jazz or something like that.
Also, not tapping it
>>
>>61954469
nothing wrong with some good slapping. not every 14 year old fag going at it like a jackhammer though.
>>
being marcus miller is a good start
>>
>>61954469
buttmad guitarist who can't handle nobody is going to care about his instrument 10~ years from now.
>>
>>61954469
5 string basses can be quite useful though
>>
Use a pick
Put a shiny thingy over the pickup
Spit on the audience
>>
>>61956681
you can play everything you can play ona 4 string on a 5 string but not the other way round. it just adds more possibility

>>

>>61957273

>>
>>61957134
>skank

Try harder. As a guitarist AND bassist I find your comment hilarously one sided and dumb.
>>
>>61957297
Shit, I meant Ska not Skank
>>
>>61957273
what's wrong with squier jag basses

>In two highly influential bands where the bass is integral to the sound of the band
>Seems like a funny and chill guy
>Prefers touring and respects the entire back catalogue from his history, not just playing the same set list for 10 years

Based Hooky

>>61954469
I mostly agree, but bass players should have room to show off every once in a while. If guitar players are showing off, the bass player should get to show off. just not too much.
>>
just try to be John Wetton as much as you can
>>

repeating other people is what children do when they are throwing a tantrum. I will now stop replying to you while you calm down.

>do you have autism?
Aren't you the one who is trying to say what music should or shouldn't be?
>>
>>61954458
The perfect bassist is as important to the music as the guitarist
He doesn't just follow guitar patterns, you can actually hear him, and he doesn't wank the guitar.
Most classic 70's prog bassists were excellent at doing their job.
