not exactly but thats basically what is represented by every bassist that is a frustrated guitarist.

Jesus christ would you stfu with these assumptions! Unless you heard those words come out of his mouth then you have no fucking clue as to why he decided to play bass instead of guitar. Maybe he just preferred it, maybe he got tired of guitar. Switching from guitar to bass dosent not always mean "Ohh geez I guess ill play bass cause its an inferior instrument". That argument is just a pile of crap.

Yeah man, I totally agree with Valtiel 100% ....I'm sick of people always saying that bass players are just bad guitar players.

Even if thats the case, that does not mean that he decided to play bass, therefore, bass is an inferior instrument.

Well, bass players don't have to play chords and usually have easier parts to play then the guitarist.

Then again, their instrument is bigger, has thicker strings, a longer neck and being good at finger picking is something I'll definitely give kudos over using a pick. And bassists who play lead well are probably better than their lead guitar counterparts.

it's all about pros and cons.

he seems to think bass is an "easier" instrument to play.
He's WRONG! sure he writes good stuff but damn, I just dont respect people with that mindset.
