Text Versions
In general, we like to play as a band - guitar, piano, and voice. We also tour with a bass player, a drummer, and somebody who plays keyboard and guitar. We try to play all of our parts and flesh it out to get a lush sound, while also keeping the energy of a three-piece punk act. We want to be the best of all possible worlds.  (Bass Guitar Players Quotes) I was in bands, but they were punk bands, and you plug in the guitars, you turn them up really loud, you’ve got four or five other people on stage with you, you’ve got some protection from when they throw lighters. You can always hide behind the lead singer or the bass player.  (Bass Guitar Players Quotes) Hendrix was the bass player for Little Richard. We were both left-handed, but we would use a right-handed guitar held upside down and backwards. He developed my slides and my riffs. In fact he used to say, and this is documented, ‘I patterned my style after Dick Dale.’  (Bass Guitar Players Quotes) Later in high school, I met Hillel Slovak, who was the original guitar player of the Chili Peppers, and we became really close. We had a band, and we didn’t like the bass player, so I started playing bass, and I got a bass two weeks later.  (Bass Guitar Players Quotes) When I listen to a record, or when I’m making a record, I listen to everything. I listen to the drums, the bass, the voice, the arrangement. I listen to the whole piece as an ensemble. I don’t only listen to the guitar player.  (Bass Guitar Players Quotes) I tried the guitar, but it had two strings too many. It was just too complicated, man! Plus, I grew up with Steve Cropper. There were so many good guitar players, another one wasn’t needed. What was needed was a bass.  (Bass Guitar Players Quotes) I’ve been in a band, so I understand the politics. Sometimes the bass player doesn’t like what the guitar player is doing, and you have to sort of even that out.  (Bass Guitar Players Quotes) Plus, I grew up with Steve Cropper. There were so many good guitar players another one wasn’t needed. What was needed was a bass  (Bass Guitar Players Quotes) To be a great band it’s like you have that telepathy. You know when the bass player’s in back of you without even looking. You know when your guitar player’s coming up to you to lean up to you and sing into your microphone. You just know these things. You feel it. You feel the energy of it  (Bass Guitar Players Quotes) A bass player has to think and play like a bass player. A drummer has to play and think like a drummer, and stay out of the way of the vocalist. The guitar player has to respect everybody else  (Bass Guitar Players Quotes) There are a lot of people who can do it on the guitar and sing at the same time, but I think what is harder is bass players that can play the bass and sing  (Bass Guitar Players Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
