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.

We take our fingers for granted.

    Boy...I have been feeling sorry for myself cause I been getting some arthritis in my fingers and it sometimes bothers me playing bass. After seeing this video I need to man up.

    A jazz guitarist friend of mine lost the tip of his left index finger a few weeks back trying to break up a dog fight in his house. He and his wife take rescue dogs in their house, so he knows better. Anyway, if the tip had been reattached, he would have had no feeling in the tip. He's waiting to see if he'll be able to play with that finger a month from now. Best of luck to him! Yes, we must be careful with our fingers and our bodies in general. I've seen the posted video. A great inspiration.
