    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.

There are so many exercises

    that can be extracted from scores, that I wonder sometime if there is better value in learning them and learning a piece at the same time than practising etudes and technical studies...Any thoughts on this? Kind of reminds me of Simandl's approach versus Vance's...

    Thanks for reading!

    You need both. The value of technical exercises and etudes is that they tend to be progressive, and often specific to technical issues. But, with proper guidance you could certainly learn to play well using only examples from literature.
