to attract the opposite sexe??

ehe, no just kidding, I liked the 'bass' sound from some hardcore bands, that's why I started after about half a year I started playing in a band and I'm still in that band, been there for like 3 years or so.

My ex-band needed a bassist. And they knew that i played guitar.
So i started to play bass. And then i realized, that i can play bass better than guitar.
And nearly every band is searching for a good bassist. I stick to it.

Mornyano, you are an idiot. I deleted your above post, and I'll delete every one of them if you continue your idiocy here.

Now I am REALLY sorry if I got you pissed off but that really was the reason I started with bass.

then it must have been pretty crappy

I think most people pick up bass because there are allready heaps of guitarist out there, that's a reason I heard a lot.
I picked up bass because of the sound, I love it..

I had no desire to play anything at all until I heard Geezer Butler doing Bassically and War Pigs, and I fell in love with the bass.

Mornyano said he picked up the bass cuz he wanted to be just like those bassists in the jokes... And that IS the real reason... Cmon dudes... Give him another change... He doesnt mean anything bad... Hes just rather light-headed... And that Bass-solo-thing... I bet it was just a bad joke... He makes them all the time... Just, try to understand him...

Hm... Im not really a bassist but I do play it quite often... the reason I picked it was probably the sound of it... And its fun to play!
