1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Hi everyone, Nice board here. I've been on a few others, Birds & Moons mostly since about a year ago. That's when I put my LP & Strat down long enough to pick up a PRS. Now it's the only one I play. BTW some of the screen names here look familar.
    Now that the kids are grown up, I'm living my life long dream of playing in a band. I've played since I was 13 but never in a band until 3 yrs ago.... We play covers at bars around town..... The wife and 3 kids look forward to our gigs.. Rock & Roll is a sneaky way of keeping our kids close......Life's good. :JAM

    Trying to work up to playing in a band. Had a taste of it back in the early 90s. Where has the time gone?

    Well.....enjoy your gigging and the good discussions here.

    Welcome to TGP fellow St. Louisan. I'm almost in the same boat you are. My kids are almost to the point where I can start looking to play in a band again. Getting started is probably the hardest part, finding local musicians with the same taste in music, finding time for rehearsals, moving equipment.

    Anyway, welcome aboard. Enjoy the threads.:JAM
