    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!
