As Reddit is to Digg, TGP is to Harmony Central.
I wish I Love Fuzz was more active. They had more people with similar musical and gear interests to me. The old musician forum at Stoner Rock wasn't bad but just didn't get the volume and then they closed it all down and I didn't keep up with the re-boot but that didn't seem too active either. I was Harmony Central before there were forums and it was just an online review database...I found out about 9/11 from H-C because I just happened to check that before the news before either tower fell. It's taken years but you kinda learn to speak in TGP. "If the Bonamassa guys like this but the Jimmy Page guys don't then how would that apply to me that is nothing like either one" can be tricky when determining the usefulness of a pedal before I buy it.
Guitar Amp Board is where the HC loyalists went.
Sevenstring.org is the only other gear forum I read/post on.
I feel like I can talk about “metal” gear and not be judged. However, I’d say there’s some “cork sniffery” that goes in there.
Maybe but I think more people there actually play compared with here ironically enough.
But either way Sevenstring is WAY smaller than TGP.
Oh yeah. Absolutely.
Is winning due to attendance really winning?
This is the only board that I still come to.
Whenever I have a question or need info someone with much more knowledge than me usually helps me out pretty quickly.
It's the best.
The look and feel is completely gone...slow loading...most old timers gone....
Well... it is for me.
The Orioles have been banking on Cal Ripken Jrs perfect attendance record for 20+ years now. LOL. Too bad we can't win a game
Most of the younger dudes yes. There's a few older guys over there from the old days also...last time I checked.
I think it has been renamed The 7th Grade Sexuality Questioning Page or T7GSQP for short.
I've posted on a number of forums over the years. This is by far the most active and and most enjoyable for me. This is really the only one I post on anymore. I used to post a lot on the LPF but, got kinda board with it.
Where does Rip Glitter post these days?
I like TGP and spend a fair amount of time here.
While it’s the most active electric guitar forum, it does seem slower than in years past. It also seems like, even though it has a huge membership base, most daily activity is due to about 80-100 regular members, though I could be way off on that. Doesn’t feel like there’s regular participation from as wide a range of users as in the past.
Regardless, I would love to find a board with a greater percentage of younger members (35 yrs and lower?), from a broader range of backgrounds (ethnicity, gender). Or for TGP to increase its diversity in those areas.
It seems like 90% or more of TGP is dudes 40 years old and older (as am I, but it would be refreshing to experience a wider range of viewpoints/voices).
