    This thread is a copy of a thread originating in DB Miscellaneous. The original thread was created for the purpose of providing access to music theory information already discussed in depth, and to avoid duplicate postings when possible. Please feel free to respond to any existing threads. Be aware that if you respond to a thread that was started on the Double Bass side of the forum, your post will be primarily viewed by a bunch of curmudgeonly Double Bassists who are perpetually cranky because they have to carry an instrument the size of a canoe around to each gig. Not only that, but a lot of these guys are already old to begin with, which affects not only their general demeanor but also their sense of humor. Generally, they are harmless, but may not always seem that way at first. Try not to be too offended if they seem unduly weird.

    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)
