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.

    Listed below are a series of topics, and links to previous discussions of same. I'll be adding to this list periodically whenever anyone suggests a new topic that should be covered here. For the sake of housekeeping and cleanliness, I'll be keeping this thread locked and stuck to the top of the forum: so if you have any suggestions or links to send me, please notify me by PM.

    NEWBIES: the purpose of this thread is not to discourage posting by new members, but rather to encourage informed posting by new members. Feel free to respond to any of these older threads - if you do, they'll get bumped back to the top and become open discussions again in case you have any questions or anything to add. You are of course also always welcome to start a new thread in any of the forums. Welcome to Talkbass!

    N.B. - the links for the MISC forum is the thread I've been dreading trying to figure out how to organize. Since I don't really have any better ideas at the moment, I'll start with some theory links. Special thanks to jazzbo for sending a bunch my way.

    (WARNING! Some of these theory links originated in the dreaded BG forums, where FiElDy RuLeZ and smilies run rampant. I'll attempt to differentiate between threads that are clearly BG oriented, and those that are more general in nature so that all of the DB snobs can peruse the links knowingly and thereby avoid those threads marked "BG" if they're afraid of getting hit by a stray freshly-named strap or getting nailed with a KoRn tattoo. If you are one of these people, read all threads marked PLANK at your own risk)
