String Instrument Enthusiasts

Postby Granger » Mon Dec 25, 2017 4:52 pm

After a bit of digging and poking around, I couldn't find a club specifically geared towards guitars or even string instruments! I found one for ukuleles, however I would love to be able to discuss the broad category of string instruments, whether it be guitar, harp, mandolin, violin, and so much more!

Before creating guidelines and all of that, I would like to see who would be interested in the idea of discussing string instruments! You do not have to be able to play one to be able to discuss, everybody is welcome! I was thinking we could ask questions, provide tabs for one another, teach each other techniques, or just talk about any type of music we are passionate about playing.

I have provided a form below to get us started, and if enough people are interested, I can make this official!

Code: Select all
[b]Username/what you would like to be called:[/b]
[b]Do you play a string instrument? If so, what instrument(s)?:[/b]
[b]If you answered yes above, how long have you been playing?:[/b]
[b]Any string instrument you would like to learn?:[/b]
[b]Can you describe your experience with music/instruments? (Ex: When/how did you discover you love them?):[/b]
[b]Anything else you would like us to know?:[/b]

Username/what you would like to be called: Granger
Do you play a string instrument? If so, what instrument(s)?: I play the ukulele and acoustic + electric guitar
If you answered yes above, how long have you been playing?: I have been playing guitar for about 3 years and ukulele for only a few months! I used to go over to my friend's house and play hers, but I just got my own for christmas :) (we opened gifts early because we are going on vacation!)
Any string instrument you would like to learn?: I would love to learn the bass and the harp!
Can you describe your experience with music/instruments? (Ex: When/how did you discover you love them?): I was attending a summer camp as a "counselor in training" for younger children a few years prior, and one of the older counselors brought her guitar and would play for the children every night by the campfire. We would all sing along and it was the most beautiful experience; everybody was so close and equal at that moment, we were all just swaying to the music and enjoying it. That is when I knew I was determined to learn the guitar!
Anything else you would like us to know?: I am extremely passionate about playing and listening to music; I believe it is the most beautiful way to connect people. I hope to meet others with similar passions!

    Do you play a string instrument? If so, what instrument(s)?: lyre harp, and previously, double bass
    If you answered yes above, how long have you been playing?: lyre for a few months, double bass for four/five years
    Any string instrument you would like to learn?: I'd like to get back into bass, and maybe pick up guitar. I really want to learn banjo!
    Can you describe your experience with music/instruments?: Fifth grade band I played the cello and fell in love, but I got moved to the bass section because we didn't have any basses and the teacher thought I could handle it! I played for years, then gave it up in favor of acting or modeling, but I've recently been making music again <3 my lovely lovely boyfriend helps, he plays piano and violin so we play well together
    Anything else you would like us to know?: making music has become my therapy - i used to dance, but after an injury, i found myself extremely depressed i could no longer tell story using my body. when i found the lyre, i realized there's a whole world that i had been ignoring. anyone who wants to discuss music, dance, etc. is more than welcome to message me!
