Very true...I might be missing some drama, just due to the threads I enter.
I haven't noticed, but I'm not around so much as in days of yore. About all I play out now is acoustic so more focus on that too I guess. plus, biding my time until I qualify for the 55 and over thread!
It's a slippery slope...you have to feel out who can take gigging and who can't...it's easier to do in person than on the web.
I’m rather new here too and I think that this one of the most civil forums I’ve ever joined. I have never seen the reply “doesn’t your keyboard type Google, or try search” or something like that here. People here seen nice and very helpful.
George’s dad and Kramer. It was either the “manzier” or the “bro” depending on who you asked, IIRC.
Talented and intellectually honest!
That's what it was! Haha
I signed up here a long time ago. I have always enjoyed internet forums. Over the years, this is the only one that has held my interest. I have left for months, if not years, at a time. When I return it feels like home. The only bad part is that a lot of the folk I enjoyed reading, or talking to seem to migrate away.
I remember the GC King of the Blues days here. Not all that long ago... I would hate to see you go. I think the world is just getting ugly. ST does a decent job of keeping the fantasy of civility and respect alive and functioning. Thank you ST.
In the end, it has to work for you. I hope you stick around. That goes for others too. The thing I would ask all members to consider (and I must do this as well) is that when we respond to others we can engage in conversation or we can just state opinions/facts. I think engaging in conversation is more in the spirit of ST. It is easier to just fire off opinions, but it's not as friendly.
I've never been able to make an instructional video available to the public on YouTube, without someone feeling the need to post something like: "If you do that you'll warp the neck", or "Doing that robs all the sustain", as if I wouldn't notice necks kept warping on me over half a century. Some people just want to post 'something', even if it's complete rubbish.
I think you'll find if you wear your Sunday suit and walk up to the bar looking confident, you'll get served.
Tony - One thing that has changed is our membership . I am guessing that there may be a 10% turnover every year ? With so old many members gone due to attrition and so many new members that you do not know it may seem like a different forum . It is mostly unchanged but it is constantly evolving daily as you can see by the answers in your thread .
I´m also new here. I think this place is like an oasis in the middle of a desert of intolerance and hate.
I like it here....what......wait.....maybe OP does have a point!
And, besides, people who play guitar are now growing old... And grumpy.
or will get the type of attention they seek...
Thanks for the mental image...
Those long Canadian winters can do strange things to a...man?
Is it one of those “wouldn’t want to join a club that would actually take me as a member” things?
Misery loves company...
Yep...any innovation of any kind and BOOM....I am here now.
