1. 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.

    I've never had any lessons in electric bass. I did play classical violin for 10 years as a child, which include some experience with double bass. I also took some acoustic guitar lessons in high school. Otherwise, I am self-taught. I have lost most of my background in music theory and gained the ability to play by ear. I learned bass by playing along with the "classic rock" stations on the radio.
