Nice story, Chucko

In my experience too everybody wants to play guitar and put the bass off on someone else. I've been in some bands wherein the guitarists totally discount the importance of the bass. Not so in my current band. They went a while without a bassist, and they've told me that it taught them just how important the bass is. As a result, they treat me well and appreciate my playing. I feel fortunate to be a bassist. All those years of playing guitar taught me a lot about playing bass too, and I think I'm a better bassist because of it.
