Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.
The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)
Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

- Influences and Teachers:
"Most of the things you absorb you will ultimately secrete."
As a bassist, I mainly play in a rock or classic rock style but as a music lover, I thrive on a steady diet of vintage jazz, blues, R&B, soul, and funk with the occasional dash of old school C&W and rockabilly thrown in for good measure! Although I may never play in some of these styles, I find that their repeated exposure influences my playing in a vast number of direct and indirect ways.
