Re: brotherhood of the bass

There is a reason for bass players sometimes souding like guitar players; 
instrument you are talking about is the bass guitar; it is capable to 
numerous roles as counterpoint, harmony and soloist. Anyone who plays bass 
playing bass because they are "thinking bass".  It is an elusive thing 
shared by
composers, pianists and other countermelodists.
