A number of times, I've made a "Guitar Thread" where I encourage people to contribute their work and share their progress.
This is now going to be a regular weekly thing - depending on my schedule. I already do a guitar thread on a different private site and this is another place where I can try to stroke the fires of creativity, learning, and growth - while fostering an attitude of sharing.
What is the guitar thread? Well, it's for guitarists - more or less. It's actually for any musician who is inclined to share their work with us. It's also for people who wish to see what we've done and a place for people to ask questions about music, performing, recording, and gear.
I've a pretty vast collection of work, I've shared some before. To be frank, I know I'm good - it's not ego, it's (literally) tens of thousands of hours of practice. I'm a trained classical guitarist who ended up playing most everything but classical guitar. Few people are willing to pay classical guitarists to play classical guitar.
Note: I've been dreaming of the day someone threw horns and the crowd screamed they wanted to hear Fur Elise. For that day, I am prepared!
Anyhow, I'm willing to answer any questions about me and this intended thread. Playing was my second career choice, it was what I did for extra money and then just kept doing after I no longer needed the extra money. I'm on a few albums, I've done studio work, and I'm recently getting into some of my own sound engineering. (I'm very new at that portion, but it's fun to learn.) I've done per-night sets, played across the country - and in other countries - and am fairly fluent in most styles of guitar, from bluegrass to improvisational jazz.
Enough about me. What do you expect and how can I help encourage you to practice, enjoy, and share your work? We don't care if you're just starting out. We don't care if you're never planning on getting good enough to perform in public. We just want to see you being happy and learning - with the emphasis on enjoying yourself and the ability to express yourself through music.
I am going to sticky this for a couple of days. My current plan is to open the thread on Friday nights (maybe Saturday afternoon) and to give the thread attention for a full 24 hours.
