You can't be good at bass, it's to simple.

Yay I have a six string, but I hate Ibanez. I have a schecter
I own a Squier Precision Bass. Uhm, I apologize if this is a box-worthy question, but how does one become "better" at playing Bass? Learning tabs? Learning chords? Improving technique?

[QUOTE=shadow_oap;18574553]French Horn plays at both Treble and Bass clef. So i fit in with you guys. EDIT: Also my drum set has a bass drum.[/QUOTE] I've never seen french horn music using the bass clef. I have however heard of a tuba playing a french horn solo. :v:
Halloo! Euphonium player. I know Euphonium has a higher range than a Tuba, but fuck it. The trombones and I lead the bass section in our 50-odd people band. [img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/3/31/Euphonium1.JPG/450px-Euphonium1.JPG[/img] I wouldn't mind learning how to play double bass at some point though. Also, does anyone else here play a bass instrument primarily in Treble Clef like I do?
i have a four string ernie ball music man Bongo. It's v nice and has gorgeous tone. Plus, the double humbucker pick ups are dead sexy with active passive electronics. <3 i def recommend it. It's kinda expensive but you can typically find it on sale especially since the holidays are coming up.

I play baritone sax in the conservatory's Big Band :)
[QUOTE=jcallan;18485628]Bass is for people too lazy to learn chords.[/QUOTE] I was gettin' mah boxes ready there. then I read the post. also, I have a $400-some epiphone SG-styled bass, can't be bothered to get pic at the moment though. it's pretty good, but gets a little string rattle on the E string.
