    Hi - Intro topic

    Hello everyone. I'm another crazy 16 yr old cricket fan from India. My fav cricket teams are India, SAF and Australia. Sachin, Ponting and Dravid are three players I love seeing.

    Apart from cricket, I like music (mostly metal and rock), reading books (strictly fiction, fantasy is my fav genre and JRR Tolkien is my favourite author) and playing my guitar (I've been trying to form a band for the last 5 months and still not very successfu).
    "D'oh!"

    As far as I know there's only one guitarist in Muse and that's Matt. Anyway the sound of the song is mainly Chris Wolstenholme pounding the crap out of his bass, with distortion on, playing one of the best bass parts I've heard for a long time, and to be fair he's played a lot of them.

    20...that's a rather big number :(:(:(

    It is, but in order to avoid confusion it is shortened to "bass" and a bass player is known as a "bassist"

    A bass is a guitar but since it sounds totally different and is totally different to play, it is never called simply a "guitar" but a "bass guitar" or simply just "bass"

    Muse have a superb guitarist/vocalist in Matt Bellamy and a superb bassist in Chris Wolstenholme. If you look in any review of any band you won't find a bass player referred to as a "guitarist", it's just not done.

    Sorry to go on and on but I'm a bassist and I suck at guitar so calling me a "guitarist" would be flattering me.

    The song is good, but not one I listen to all the time. Needless to say it's a great one to jump about to at a festival

    Those aren't old bands. Those are classic bands. They made music in its truest form.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I'd consider the only people who made music in it's truest form to be the composers, men such as Mozart and Holst ect. Classical music is the very centre of music, the most complexe, the most beutiful and probably the best.

    No. They made classical music in its truest form. Maiden etc. are pioneers of a totally different type of music.... rock.

    Interesting topic.

    Incidentally there are also Bass players in my music (4 of them usually), but they're described as the old farts at the back of the band!
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Bass can be anything you want it to be. The main sign of a good bass player is the rythems he/she pulls off. Some of the Jazz bassists like Miles Davis' and Dave Brubeck's are examples of this. I work on rythem more than notes in my band, even though we arn't really that Jazzy, only occasionally we bring it into piano songs.
