guitar but bass is necessary in any music, be it from drums or the bass guitar. and if you're a one man band, your bass line would be your root note so you could play just one chord throughout a chorus or riff and make it sound good just by changing the root note which is basically bass haha

well, i play the guitar, so naturally i would choose guitar, but i feel that bass is on a whole different level, i mean, look at bassists like Billy Sheehan, or Fred Leclerq, or Iron Maiden's Steve Harris, they dont just play bass like the bottom notes of the song, like simple Do Re Mi, they totally pwn the bassist's part of the song, not trying to offend anyone, but those that think bass is easier than guitar, think again

You're joking right? please tell me you're joking. Playing the Bass is not easy and anyone who thinks it is is an ignorant fool. Go listen to Jaco Pastorious or Victor Wooten, then pick up a bass and play what they are playing. Heck pick up a bass and play something. anything at all. Without practice playing the bass is just like playing a guitar... IMPOSSIBLE. Dont ever say playing a bass is easy. I HATE when people automatically assume that playing the bass is easy. IT'S NOT. don't every assume it is. Take it from one who actually plays the bass. just because it has 4 strings does not make it easy. instead it makes it harder. learn the bass and talk to me in two years

as for me I like the bass better. the low end of the scale is more aesthetically pleasing and there are some awesome riffs that can compliment a song greatly.

okaay, dude, ur just going over the same thing, like, 12 times (I counted personally) maybe its just cuz ur a bit slow and, if its impossible, tell me y ur playin the bass now, huh? and y all those ppl in bands who play bass are picking up the thing and playin in front of tons of ppl, HUH?????? if it was impossible, y would they b famous, HUUUUUUHHHH?????????

RETARD!


clearly hyperbole isn't in your vocabulary
I don't have the patience or the time to argue with the mentally unstable


waaaaaaaaaaaaatev. clearly ur unssufficient mind is too slow or is not there to produce the words that r written on this comp.


youre being really immature, you know that? bass is not easier than guitar, read my earlier post

Geez -- all you lame ROCKERS talkin bout yer BASS GUITARS. String bass all the way man! I challenge you to present an instrument sexier than the double bass.


However, much as I hate to admit it, I must agree with lyzergnature. The bass line from Let Me Be With You is so fun to play, it made me fall in love with bass guitar again. Still, tho, can't stand up to the power of a string bass.

Both are on equal levels. I love a face melting guitar solo as much as i love a funky bassline. Oh and bassists do have solos too.

To the people who said bass is easy, look up John Myung, Steve Harris, Tony Choy, Eric Forest, Alex Webster, Billy Sheehan, Eric Langlois, Steve DiGiorgio, Stefan Fimmers and Steve Cloutier

EDIT: There are 5 and 6 string basses as well.

but the bass is still alright.
