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.

    Just wondering if anyone knows if there is a free site on the web that allows you to pick out a guitar chord and once you select it the chord plays and continues to sustain until you turn it off. I am trying to get good at walking over guitar chords

    Thanks

    I would guess that wholenote.com has something similar to that, or even activebass.com

    An even better option would be to get the program Band In Box. You can program in whole chord progressions with that.

    +1, and the chord trainer/builder section is very useful too. BIAB is not exactly free however...;)

    The free software program Audacity will let you:

    - loop play any part of a song
    - speed up or slow down a song without changing pitch
    - change pitch up or down without changing tempo
    - literally hundreds of sound processing options ranging from compression to EQ to - -- volume normalization to canceling out vocals so you can practice your karaoke etc. etc.
    - record whatever's coming into your computer be it your bass, vocals, a cassette tape, etc.
    - save files in any format (wav, mp3, aac, flac, etc.)
    - play a soundfile in one track and record a second track simultanously (good for making playalong demos)

    I've often used it to change the key of songs I'm supposed to learn and save them out as mp3s.

    I've often used it to slow down songs and loop the difficult passages so I can focus on them until I've got them.

    It's like photoshop for sound files.
