    I would have to say a definitive YES. And true talent comes in the form of Geddy Lee who plays bass yet sings lead vocals (melody) simultaneously.

    The real (or is that reel) question should be, "Is bass fishing really a sport?"

    well, asking if bass playersa and drummers are real musicians. Following that logic, I'll have to start a thread on if guitarists are real musicians

    I play in a duo with a great bass player and he is a damn fine and talented musician ... he can also play keys and guitar and his music theory knowledge is great too ..... his only draw back is that he has a beard!

    Bass players have to know about harmony and rhythm, whilst holding down a killer groove.The bass player is the consumate musician.

    lol this is a good one, as a bassist i know that my job is being done well when no one notices me playing,usually when people realize there is a bass player its when we f up. plus playing 8ths all the time gives me the chance to check out all the hotties at the show.

    The only thing I dont like about bass, is that most of the kids that are starting to learn it now just learn it because its easy. Dont get me wrong, I know most people aren't like this, its just annoying to see people that are.
