The 10 Commandments of Bass

  1. Thou shalt not fuck up the groove. Fuck up the notes if thou must, but not the groove.
  2. Thou shalt not lust after thy guitar player's part. He keepeth the fun; thou keepeth the groove.
  3. Be thou not swayed by a drummer with crappy time, for thou art the keeper of the beat.
  4. Be thou not led into temptation before the gig. After is cool.
  5. Thou pusheth thy luck with five strings; six is a mortal sin, for thou hast no business in the upper register.
  6. Thou shalt not thump with thy thumb, nor honk with a pick when thy fingers are the way of truth.
  7. Thou shalt not fear whole notes, for they can be the way and the light.
  8. Thou shalt leave the fancy shit to thy bandmates, so they might wrestle with their own bad taste.
  9. Thou shalt change thy strings at least once per decade, whether they need it or not.
  10. Thou shalt tune thy bass before each and every gig, even though it was in tune when thou put it away.
