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.

    Does anyone have any links to good sight-reading resources/links? I've got a bit out of practice recently. Thanks in advance.

    (Note: This thread is in the TAB forum. Seems to me that it should be moved to the General Instruction Forum.)

    You are talking about sight reading Standard Notation (SN) and not Tab, right?
