According to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the bass is the most important part of a song. People can follow along better with the bass line of a song more so than the higher-pitched sounds of guitars and drums. They found that your brain finds the rhythm easier when sound is played in a lower tone.
So quit with the bass player jokes! You know what I'm talking about:
- What do bass players use for contraception? Their personalities!
- What do you call a beautiful woman on a bassist's arm? A tattoo.
- What's the first thing a bass player says at work? "Would you like fries with that?"
