Blessings one and all! It's ages since I posted. I practically live in the studio these days. It's so damn hot yet it's raining cats and dogs too! :confused::)

Back to the issue or question. You have the anti-christ, beatniks etc..., what do you call a bass hater? Anti-bassist?

A friend of mine suggested 'video director'!! :D Apparently, that's what anti-bassist, bass hater is called!!! :rolleyes:

Acoustic Folk Rock Guitar and Singer.

 

Personal experience: a woman I know is an excellent songwriter, singer, and a fairly good acoustic guitar player. She normally plays solo. She decided to enter a battle of the bands and got an electric guitar player and I provided the rhythm section (me on bass, a former bandmate of mine on drums).

 

We had to quickly (I think we had 3 or 4 rehearsals in 3 or 4 days) adapt a half-dozen of her songs to a band format. She was usually pleased with the guitar player (I was too) and the drummer (I was too), but she just could not get used to the bass. I would play a part and she (and the other players) would say that it was great and they liked it, and then when we all played together, she would say "Something is wrong...turn down the bass a little more." Over and over and over until I pretty much had to sit on my amp to hear what I was playing.

 

It was fairly frustrating. It was a short-lived project though, so I didn't lose much sleep over it. :)

I frequent another bass forum where I post mp3's The following is a small sample of some of the actual responsesI have gotten over the last couple of years.

 

Lug's bass playing is not unbad. - Funkee1 /You're the only bassist I know whose roadie has to manage a SaniCan as well as a bass rig. - The Lurker / Lug not only sucks, but he sucks with such total and utter power that even black holes can do little but stare in amazement. - Thrash Jazz / Everytime I click on lug's MP3s I wanna jam a turkey baster in my ear and suck out my brains - mikgag / dear god, the last 30 seconds of that... lets just say i thought mikgag was kidding about the turkey baster... oddity_UK / That's amazing. No matter how many times I hear Lug play, it still causes that little bit of vomit to work its way up my throat, and it won't go back down. I spit it out and half expect it to wiggle its way south towards Texas - Craigv / many were making fun of Lug....so I asked for a sample of his work, got an MP3 and played it..I am still trying to get rid of the locusts that suddenly appeared raining in my home, the boils on my skin and bleeding from my rectum has almost healed. Though my entire family is completely blind now, those that did not commit suicide are doing better...though the dreams never stop. William Hung??.........forget it. Lug has no equal. - kmrumedy / If you establish a new religion for the masses called Suckiness you will be their Messiah and that .MP3 shall be their bible. Your powerful Suck never was more justified - Tivorosky / There are no words in any language, living or dead, that can even begin to describe this. - Mudbass upon stumbling across my nastier MP3's / The King of Suck has Überpowers that even a moderator can't beat. -JazzAd, Mod / Lug's tone is so unique you can smell it - bigbottomline ... i use his mp3's everytime i need to unclog the sink... most power suck around!..megadan / the total lack of taste and just about anything interesting makes your song so powerfully terrible that it truly deserves to be on a porn movie starring Mrs Packman at age 95 - evilnightrime / I remember once in my maths class we were doing logarithms, except the lecturer's writing was dodgy and it looked like lugarithms. I laughed inwardly but deep down I knew that such a thing was a contradiction in terms - FreestyleIntruder / Lug, even your signature sucks. - Banta / It feels dirty, like listening to lug mp3's...Incubitabus / Lugishness: The act of wishing to be the most unworthy of praise, to want to be the worst at something, to drain the life out of whatever activity one attempts, to suck. - ModmanQ6 / Hunt for popcorn (a well known Lug MP3) moved my bowels quicker that a 4 quart enema and a spanking from a 200 pound midget. - Koz

 

I rest my case.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry. That's a hell of a compilation!

 

So, I wouldn't mind hearing some of those famous mp3s! Let's get a link in here!

Well you haven't really angered me so I will only post a semi-horrible one. One must build a tolerance before taking on the full horror of a Lug mp3. This is my ode to dancing ninja monkeys

Brings a tear to my eye when I play it.

Oh my Jesus.

 

Sounds like someone took the entire band Devo and put them in a large pressure cooker after feeding them large amounts of illict drugs.

Careful, you may get a Defamation of Character suit from DEVO's lawyers! :eek:

LOL :D

 

You sure are a muse lug!

 

(I haven't listened to your stuff.)

 

On the topic. I'd agree that neighbours hate bass.

Well, bass will eat a wide variety of foods, including crayfish, small fish, and insects. Adults feed most heavily in the evening and morning. Young rock bass become food for larger predatory fishes such as large basses, northern pike, and muskies, and they compete with such fish as smallmouth bass for food.

 

So, I would assume crayfish, small fish and insects are bass-haters...

Oh man--sorry!

 

I mis-read your question... :o

Except in my building, which features a bass player above me, and another one next door.

Afternoons are, um, rather, um... bassful.

Hate is a harsh word. My girlfriend doesn't like bass, she prefers swordfish. (rim-shot)

 

hmmm - one who hates the bass.... Bass player usually represents individuality, usually one per band, will usually rescue the band in live situations, will be point of advancement or aaptation. answer: Communist.
