Subject: What should I write on washtub base?

My washtub base has several " personal modifications."
    In big 4" adhesive letters, I have "BABE MAGNET."
    Also, there is a bumper sticker that says, "Hug a musician; they never get to dance.
    And, on the edege, where you place your foot to hold the tub down, I have written: A, B, C, D, E, F, G. These are placed at equal intervals, and people will actually put there foot on the appropriate letters for the key we are playing in!!!
    I leave it out in front of the band, and invite anyone up there to play it. Great "ice breaker."

On a washtub BASE you should put "Other side up!"

Well Dave, I was thinking more like, "This is the base for my washtub." But "other side up" is pretty damn good!!!!

I have a T-shirt (from www.strumhollow.com who do other instrument ones)which says "Washboard players know how to have good clean fun" which could be adapted for washtub basses.

Broke 3 strings and lost the wood part.

Bass tablature: bum bum bum.

The faster I play, the more bummed I get.

Bumdaddy.

(Wore that out)

Out of tune, out of mind. (My personal favorite).

No cracks about my G string.

It's ALL about rhythm.

Keeping the beat around here is like herding cats.
