1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please make yourself at home! I've deleted the previous "migration" threads, please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum.

    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.

    Anyone realize random commercials on TV have cool bass lines. Random stuff like for insurance or yogurt. Anyone notice this? I even heard a cool one in a old el Paso ad.

    I just notice that ED medication commercials get all good songs.

    The bump music on TMZ has a pretty frantic picked bass line-and of course all the Kardashians you can stand! :D

    Yeah I notice. Sometimes while the wife is watching TV I play along with all the music. Good for ear training!

    I enjoy playing the bass line from the Viagra commercial. (Which pretty much is Boom, Boom.) I was trying out a bass at GC the other day and a guy said "that's cool, what is that song?" When I told him that it was the bass line from the Viagra commercial, he laughed so "hard" that I thought he'd cough up a lung.

    I like the song that plays in Southern Comfort's Dance commercial. Estrelar by Marcos Valle. Currently learning the bass by ear, main part is easy. Chorus is what i'm figuring out now.
