    Well if there's one person out there who thinks that a bassist isn't a musician, there's got to be at least one who thinks a guitarist isn't either.
    Let's find out.

    Anyone who plays an instrument is considered a musician. Especially if you could write songs too.

    Even if you sing, you are a musician. Your instrument is your throat!

    guitar players are definitely no musicians! Bus drivers canĀ“t drive cars, women have a single nose, next president of US will be King Kong, days are nights and green is red.:boink:

    i'd say most are, but there are some who just plain suck and only play for attention. they- are not musicians.

    that seems like such a weird question.
    isnt a musician one who performs music?
    it doesnt matter if you compose it or not. or what insturment you play it on.

    i agree with him on this... when you are playin for the attention then you arent much of a musician. sure, its nice :) but if thats the reason you picked up the guitar...

    Bass players play an instrument that is typically easier to play, depending on the type of music, but if the musician wants to explore it they can be amazing.

    Les Claypool, Flea, and Geddy Lee are great examples.

    I play a guitar, but that don't make me a musician
    (just started 1 week ago)

    It's all relative, the guitarist is considered a musician if her/his playing skill reaches a certain level of professionalism. But wat's dat pro thing? Nobody knows for sure, just listen and decide.
