We weren't going to let an outage stop us! We gathered 'round the cooling ashes of the server and had ourselves a hell of a good (and active) weekly guitar thread on the preview site.
That means quite a few goats didn't get to see the thread, so we're going to see if anyone's interested in doing it again tonight. Here's the link for those who missed that thread:
Note: That thread is now pretty dead because we've all come back to this site. But, it's there if you want to check it out. It was a pretty awesome thread and was surprisingly active. Feel free to check it out - though I'd recommend making any comments here instead of there.
Now, for my usual blurb!
It's that time again, a time when we get together and share our work, talk about performing, talk about practice, ask questions, and see if we can push ourselves to new levels of enjoyment. The most important thing is that we enjoy ourselves.
Some of us play for fun. Some of us are professionals. Some of us are retired professionals (sort of, damn it). Some of us are just learning. Some of us don't even really play at all. It doesn't matter, we want to hear you play as well as you can - or just play.
I don't care if you play a kazoo - I want to hear it and, if history is any guide, the rest of the folks who frequent this thread also want to hear it. So, no matter what you play, come share it with us. If we like the song, we'll sing along when we all get to the chorus!
For those that don't know, you can keep track of a few things at https://playguitar.gq and there's a funny little spot on the side. If you insert a name and an email address, I'll send out notifications to let you know that the thread's going to start. No, I don't care if you use a real name. No, I won't spam you with anything. I'll only send you the notice - that's it.
If, for some reason, this site goes down, I'm working on a forum where we can still get together. If you do visit, do remember that I have a hosting company and they have standards. So, please don't get me booted off, thanks!
Grab your guitar and your cell phone - and play us a song. Sing for us! Play a piano. Make electronic music. Play a kazoo, blow a trumpet, bang a xylophone! We don't mind - we want to hear all of it, not just guitar.
Note: It should be brought to your attention that we have https://playguitar.gq as a place for retreat when the site goes down again. More specifically, there's https://forum.playguitar.gq and that's coming up to speed, though it's already functional.
