The "Bass Dogs" Tumblr Brings Two of Our Favorite Things Together at Last

A guy on Tumblr is replacing musicians' bass guitars in pictures with dogs. And it's almost too good.

Over the course of my life, I've seen a lot of musicians fingerpicking bass in rock bands, and whenever I see someone fingerpicking bass there's this moment when I stop for a second and think: Oh, that person is not using a pick on his bass.

Followed by: Fingerpicking bass looks a little funny. 

And then: At least he's not thwacking it with his thumb!

And then I go on and continue watching the show.  

The guy who made Bass Dogs, @michaelmphysics, didn't just let the sleeping dogs lie when confronted with the unique image of people fingerpicking bass. He thought long and hard about it. He decided to replace the basses with dogs. 

The result is amazing.

His site, Bass Dogs, is subtitled "People who play the bass with their fingers look like they're tickling a hairy dog," and we couldn't agree more. How did we ever not think this?

As he explains on the site, "I noticed that bass players who use their fingers as opposed to a pick look like they’re tickling hairy dogs, so I used computer prowess, my brain and a shovel to badly Photoshop pictures of dogs on top of their basses."

Head to Bass Dogs to see all of them, and note that @michaelmphysics accepts submissions, so if you think you've got what it takes to Photoshop a dog into a picture of someone playing bass, send him a copy to dogsasbasses@gmail.com.

Visit Bass Dogs and the Bass Dogs Twitter page, and, you know, rock on.
