hey guys, some of you checked out my last thread about what draws you to the gear page over any other musician based site you could be spending time on. i really appreciate the responses thus far. sounds like we all come here for the same basic reasons. i've been unearthing (for me at least) a few other sites like indaba music and ejamming which, on paper, sound pretty interesting for anyone serious about their music. that got me wondering: does anyone here use these (or similar) sites? what's the appeal and do they work as advertised? again, they sound cool on paper but i'm a bit skeptical and wanted to get some thoughts about the experience. thanks guys/gals!
