Why an Audio-Video Progress, Performance & Feedback Area?

What this section is.

Many people, and many forum members, have improved their guitar skills by making audio-video recordings of their playing. As analytical tools, these can highlight issues and mistakes in technique and can be used as measures of progress over time. They can also give a simple sense of achievement and pleasure at having advanced to the level of being able to perform a favourite riff, a solo, a piece of music or a song - or at playing an improvisation over a backing track.

We are all here to learn to play guitar.  To become better in our playing.  To have fun.

And we have an amazing community spirit here of 'paying it forward'.  What we learn we pass on to those taking the same footsteps we once took.  And this area is designed to welcome and to help everyone who wants to join in with this sharing ethos.

That said, we acknowledge that posting your first audio / video of you playing is a big step for some as they don't feel they have the skills or confidence to 'perform'.  We have had members tell us that they only felt brave enough to overcome that hurdle within the relative safety of a group thread. 
NOTE ... it is not about being a great performer though - it is about becoming better through performing to your best and then improving some more.

So, we have a thread just for members taking their first steps.  If you have never posted before and would prefer not to create your own thread, with the spotlight on you individually, then you are more than welcome to join in here.

  ----------------------------------------------------------------

Jump aboard and join in.

Be positive - about your own progress and positive towards others.

Give 'Good Vibes' to others.

Have fun. 

:)

Thank you.

Bumping with this as an addendum to the original post above ...


Important update April 2020

NOTE: What this section is not!

This forum section is not designed for already accomplished musicians with no prior connection to JustinGuitar to upload their audio-video recordings and ask people to like, subscribe, rate or share for the own self-aggrandisement and view count.

Everybody loves to see and hear someone play a juicy guitar part. But there are literally countless online guitar videos people could spend their time viewing. The forum community will happily give their time to watching and then writing appreciative comments to any one that joins in the giving spirit of the forum. A colder reception will rightly be offered to people abusing our generosity without giving back.
The moderators reserve the right to take action against any members new to the forum, making no obvious effort to engage in wider community discussions, and whose sole intention seems to be to use the forum as a platform for directing traffic to their channels. Action may include merging all separate threads together with a suitably edited title, a polite reminder of the etiquette and expectation stated here and, if needed, a warning as to future posts.
