Is anyone active 'round here?

Hello Everyone I'm Glory!

The website and forums don't seem very active anymore... guess I signed up kind of late :(

Recently I've really been focused on becoming better at playing the guitar. I've lost a lot of passion for playing games, but I still really love a lot of the music from the games I used to play competitively.

I was hoping to chat with some of you on here and maybe jam some time.

This is one of the recordings I did last month. I'm still trying to improve, but if anyone reads this, I would love to add some of you to skype or aim.

Take care!

Hey ! Welcome to GameTabs dude.

Yeah, you're right, this website is not as active as it used to be, but still, there are always some new (or old, dig up from oblivion) forum threads and a lot of new tabs. I'm usually not very active, at least on the forum, but I just wanted to say hi as I was passing by. :P

Have fun lurking around here !

well to be honest, i dont really think there was much of forum activity to begin with =p.
But occasionally, some people get this ambitious surges and some kinda activity is born.

Welcome to gametabs! I can say by experience is that the most active forum (not counting tabs) are the "tune contests", but even those are not very active at times. hope you enjoy your stay here F͏̴̴͎̱̫̤͍͎̪͓̱̘͔͙͎̥͉̀O̩̻̙̞̫͈̥̦̘̕͠͝͞R̷̨͝҉̳̼̮̼̭͇̗̖̪͓̫̱̦̝̦̦̹̙E̸̷̡̞̮̲̻̭͓̘̬͓̯͖̠̤̜͍͜͝V̷̢̰̻͙̹̟̱̮͔̫̠͙̫̞̯̗́̕Ẹ̶̲̫̞̣͔̘̭̯̰̱̭̟̩͞͡Ŕ̢̡̙̮̯͔͘

I hover around from time to time to see if there's anything that catches my eye. I always enjoy checking out the new recordings, that section of the site seems more active than ever. I started a fingerstyle competition a long time ago... yeah. I should resurrect it this summer, see who's interested, maybe bring in some of my subscribers.

Edit: Welcome to the site!

i just haven't had anything to contribute for awhile. got a few little projects going with other local people right now and haven't thought of any vg tunes i've felt like doing.

i'm curious to know what that glove you were wearing in the video is made of. my calluses are nasty and very audible and i think using one might help my recordings. xD nice tune, btw.

Thanks for the replies

Thanks for the replies everyone, it has really made me feel at home!

Do any of you use skype or aim? I have a lot to learn and enjoy discussing about guitars in general. Would really love to chat with some of you whenever available.

As for which gloves I use. I get them from http://www.originalguitarfingers.com/

I have really dry fingers whenever I play guitar and slides don't work well for me for whatever reason. Maybe it's still a crutch or excuse for me, but I really love playing with the gloves on. I go through a pair every month or so though. The heavy version lasts forever but I think its a bit too thick. The medium one is really nice though.

Have yet to try the fingers though, I may give those a shot soon.

new gloves every month? weird. i mean, i'd never heard of guitar gloves. but if it keeps you encouraged to play and practice, no sense in knocking it.

i'm usually signed on to both skype and aim. you can private message me for my name.

If it's hard for you to play slides on your guitar, maybe some Fast Fret on your strings can help. Especially if your strings are old !
Concerning the forum, it seems like most people here are rather readers than writers ^^

The gloves make it a lot easier for me to play in general. I wouldn't say its hard to slide without them on, but it's definitely harder. The skin on my finger cracks and dries up the minute I play guitar.

I think the forum was pretty darn active from 2009-2011. Wasn't there a recent question about when the golden era of the forum was?

Every once in a while I get a nice comment on a YouTube video, and it makes me want to start recording again. If me and the gf work up some flute/guitar shizzle, I might start posting again..
