Q What's the definition of a bassist

A1: Someone not egotistical to be a guitarist

You're a freak of nature.
I remember watching in amazement as Geddy sang, played bass, and played the keyboards with his feet. I thought, "Who is this guy???"

It can't be as big as that belonging to a guitarist - it doesn't look awuashed on your avatar.

This one's a drummer joke, but oh well.

Q: What's the difference between a drummer and a podiatrist?
A: The podiatrist bucks up your feet!
Wheels within whells, a spiral array
A pattern so grand and complex
Time after time, we loose sight of the way
Our causes can't see their effects

The great bassist Jeff Berlin once commented about bass players and smoking. He thought it was drummers who looked cool smoking cigarettes onstage. He said that the last time he'd tried smoking onstage, he got smoke in his eye, went temporarily blind, and ended up accidentally clobbering Alan Holdsworth with the headstock of his bass.

How many bassists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

a) None, the pianist can do that with his laft hand
b) 4, 1 to actually screw it in, and 3 to fight off the guitarist who is hogging all the light
c) Only one, but only after he uses up a dozen light bulbs before finally realizing you must twist them, not just push them in.

Have you heard about the specialist dog show?

Entered into it were a mathematicians dog, an architects dog and a drummers dog. First on is the Mathematicians dog. The judges place seven bones in front of him. The dog places three bones behind him and barks four times to great applause.

Next on is the architects dog. Once again seven bones are placed in front of him which the dog fashions into a miniature house to more applause.

Finally its the turn of the drummers dog. When the seven bones are placed in front of him, he immediately eats them before screwing the other two dogs. turning to the Judges he asks, in a loud voice, 'How much does this gig pay anyway?'
