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 so happy!

    After a few months and several auditions, I finally landed an audition with a great band. Just my age, super talented and nice people, dream set list. I learned their entire set list for the audition, 40 songs, just to be prepared. The audition was today and I nailed it! They actually used the words "You rock" (I always secretly suspected that I rocked :) ).

    Long story short, I got it and I am thrilled! Now I get to play some of my favorite songs with really cool people. It's my early Christmas present!

    40 songs for an audition shows a lot of dedication and commitment up front. Glad that the band recognized this and gave you a shot. Good luck!

    Congrats...Now...keep your FOCUS...make it a challenge everyday to get better and prove to your mates with every session, that they chose the right bassist. This will help to keep your mind from going to mush and loosing your passion for the greatest instrument ever invented.
