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.

    Eric Lindsherr/Magneto in "X-Men" said that famous line. It does remind me a bit of bass guitar discussions.

    "Should I quit my band?" If you're asking, you probably should.

    "Should I found my own band?" Again, you probably should, especially if you asked the previous question.

    "My band fired me out of the blue at the top of our game. Was there a reason or are they just jerks?" Hey, "if ain't broke, don't fix it" applies to performance too, so they're most likely jerks.

    "Will people get upset if I use a pick?" Only those on Talkbass. :D

    "What's the best bass/amp/pedal/strings for praise and worship?" Whatever you want to use or already have.

    "Why are Yellow Freight trucks orange?" They are orange because the guy who founded Yellow Freight wanted the safest trucks on the road. He was also friends with JJ DuPont, whom he asked "What color is visible from the farthest distance away?" DuPont said "That's easy. Swamp Hollow Orange." (Well, you may or may not have known that.)

    "Am I too old to rock out?" Not according to Tony Iommi, Charlie Watts, BB King, Chuck Berry, Leonard Cohen, Jimmy Page, or Brian May.

    "Is craigslist a good place to find band members?" Well, in theory it is....

    "Is this thread supposed to be funny?" Actually, yeah, it is. :D

    Will you get crucified for asking about fake Fender decals? Indeed you will.

    Should he go out with her? Probably not.

    Is micromanaging your kid's band a good idea? Nope.

    If you ask the internet for advice... then expect a "yes" generally speaking...;)

    I had an attorney tell me that a good attorney never asks a question that he doesn't already know the answer to. In that context, at least, I tend to believe it.

    Lol especially with all the already asked questions. You want someone's opinion, it's been asked. Google: life's search feature :p

    I'm a teacher. It's my job to ask questions to which I know the answer...mostly.

    "Why do people like those atrocious looking relics? Are these people just hipsters trying to look cool?"

    "Why is everyone so pissed off, now?"
