    I've never seen french horn music using the bass clef. I have however heard of a tuba playing a french horn solo.

    Halloo! Euphonium player. I know Euphonium has a higher range than a Tuba, but fuck it. The trombones and I lead the bass section in our 50-odd people band.


    I wouldn't mind learning how to play double bass at some point though.

    Also, does anyone else here play a bass instrument primarily in Treble Clef like I do?

    i have a four string ernie ball music man Bongo. It's v nice and has gorgeous tone. Plus, the double humbucker pick ups are dead sexy with active passive electronics. <3 i def recommend it. It's kinda expensive but you can typically find it on sale especially since the holidays are coming up.

    Most of the baritone/euphonium music I see is still primarily bass clef, but I still see plenty of treble music for it.

    Bass is for people too lazy to learn chords.
    I was gettin' mah boxes ready there. then I read the post.

    also, I have a $400-some epiphone SG-styled bass, can't be bothered to get pic at the moment though. it's pretty good, but gets a little string rattle on the E string.

    I own a Squier Precision Bass.

    Uhm, I apologize if this is a box-worthy question, but how does one become "better" at playing Bass? Learning tabs? Learning chords? Improving technique?

    I use compression for slapping sometimes. Envelope and autowah can do some funky things too sometimes.

    you would do that with practise sir. tabs are easy once you understand them, bass does not use chords and again technique is with practising. help?

    I can slap fairly well. Nothing like Claypool or whoever the big slap-bass idol is these days, but I do good.

Both the bass and the amp are amazing, I know people who have spent twice this much on a bass alone that doesn't sound nearly as well as this.

    That's where you are wrong. Bass USUALLY doesn't use chords. Sometimes it does though.
