Its amazing how much sense that paragraph made :thu:

I'm not quite sure why this thread is amusing me so much. I guess it brings back memories of eBay searches for "bass" listed highest price to lowest, and having quite a few fishing vessels show up at the top of the list.

 

And I know my response to an ad reading "free base" would be different than my response to one reading "free bass" -- although hopefully the latter wouldn't have been placed by the local fish monger!

 

Perhaps all of this would be moot if luthiers just started building bass-shaped basses. Fish hooks could attach the strings to the bridge and locking reels could serve as tuners.

 

I wonder if Les Claypool is lurking and reading all of this...

I've been listed on more than one occasion as playing "deep sea bass" on recordings I've done for people. :D

I've always thought that spelling it "base" would make a lot more sense. Since the bass is at the *base* of the music. Some people (bassists, in particular) might even say that all good music is *based* around the bass. ;)

 

Do they spell it "base" in other parts of the world? Remember "Ace of BasE"? Is it a European thing?

 

Screw the big smelly fish. From now on, I play BASE! :thu:

All your bass are belong to us!

What's really funny, however, is when you ask your girlfriend to pick you up a 'bass' magazine while she's at the drugstore, and she comes home with a 'fishing' magazine for you that says "Bass" right on the cover. How can you blame her?!

 

And what's not so funny is that I'm older than Slaetry's mother.

 

:D

Ain't a European thing. French has the compromisory "basse" and in Italian it's "basso." Whereas the Italian for base would be "baso." Anyone contribute some other European language tidbits.

 

And again, I proclaim: Fish on!

 

Peace.
