Continuing the tradition, here’s the annual birthday post for No Treble.
Time just keeps flying by. Since our last birthday, nearly 68,000 new friends have joined us on our Facebook page.
One of our big additions since our fifth birthday was the launch of Groove – the No Treble Podcast, hosted by Mitch Joel. Right now, we’re doing one episode per month, but we’re working hard to increase the frequency in the coming months in our quest to create the largest audio library of bassist interviews the world has ever seen.
No Treble is now visited by nearly 275,000 people per month, who combine for half a million visits each month. That’s a lot of bass!
We’ve now published 8,068 stories, videos, columns, lessons and features.
As I’ve said in past years, the reason for all of this is No Treble’s readers. Your kind words, emails, shared photos and encouragement are rocket fuel to us. As always, my favorite features are the ones where we get to feature you, via our Reader Spotlight, videos, Old School and more.
The crew here is as thoughtful, knowledgable and dedicated as any I’ve had the pleasure to work with, and there’s no chance No Treble could exist without them. Special thanks to these wonderful people:
- Kevin “Mr. Crush It” Johnson (Managing Editor, and even more, one of my best friends)
- Damian Erskine (Ask Damian Erskine)
- Donovan Stokes (The Lowdown with Dr. D)
- Ryan Madora (Bass Players You Need To Know, The Lightbulb Moment, I Wish I Knew That, and Blues Bass columns)
- Thomas “MarloweDK” Risell (Bass lessons)
- Stuart Clayton (Transcriptions)
- Mitch Joel (Groove – The No Treble Podcast)
- Sara and Kayla – my daughters – who have worked hard on making things hum with the No Treble Shop, excellent NAMM companions, not to mention cheering their dad on from day one on this project.
I’d love to hear from you and find out where you think we should go next. What have you enjoyed here? What would you like to see us do more? Please tell us about it in the comments.
Most of all, thank you for your friendship, readership, comments and for spreading the word. It means the world to us.
