    I don't know if what I do with it qualifies as "playing", but I own a bass guitar. It mostly sits in its stand, collecting dust. I will pick it up when I hear a clever bass line that I think I can replicate, figure it out, then put the bass back in its stand. I don't even plug it in.

    Poor, neglected bass. I feel bad for it sometimes. Then I pick up the uke. Much more convenient.

    hey man, yea i play some bass, i was getting pertty good, and then i got this little thing called a uke, and my bass playing has almost stopped...! but yea, can't beat four strings i guess.
    i play(ed) bass a lot with a buddy who plays guitar, reel big fish, rage, and chili peppers are what we played a lot.

    oh haha so today i finally got my little stick on pick up for the uke, but i only have a bass amp, so i plugged her in. it didnt sound to bad, just cut the bass and turned up the treble.

    what kind of basses are people out there playing with?
    i've currently have the ibanez acoustic electric black

    I have a solid body Washburn for rock and funk. And a Acoustic/Electric Ibanez for jazz. It's the Black ash Ibanez. Could we be playing the same bass?

    I've played with my school's jazz band and now I'm starting to spread out and do some other stuff, like Beatle's tunes...

    I love playing bass. I played bass for a few years in a band. I play a 3/4 scale Gretsch Electromatic.

    I like the way is sounds when it's unplugged, but I also like the way it sounds when it's plugged in, though not as much. It sounds great in the jazz band i play in. I also love the built in tuner!

    i play a little bass. i play several different styles. but my most favorite is double thumb/slap from the funk era. Larry Graham and the Graham Central Station and Cameo are some of my most inspirational from that era.. Nowadays though, I'm lovin' marcus miller's style.
    yes, i play warcraft.
    yes, i have a girlfriend that plays warcraft too.
    no we're not asian.


    ...actually, we are.
