Thank you for participating in SSS, and megathanks to Dave Bryce, Future Music, and Jim Quinn (the Force) for bringing Musicplayer.com back into the mainstream.

Please, tell your friends! We have an opportunity here...let's not pass it up. Musicplayer.com will continue to grow regardless, but I have no problem with making it grow faster, bigger, and better smile

Thanks again, everyone. Looking forward to what we'll do in 2020...and yes...I have some ideas about that! smile

I stop by almost daily, don't always post, but read what others have posted. Musicplayer.com is my happy place. smile


A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.

Your posts are always appreciated. SSS has always had more lurkers than posters...as one person said when I asked why he didn't post, he said he felt he was listening in on a fascinating panel discussion smile

Thanks for being here.

It's always nice talking to other musicians about what I love dearly, music. And there are some very intelligent and astute people here to talk with, exchange ideas with, and learn from.

Yeah, I get lots out of FB and other social media because it's where some people I want to stay connected with are, but MPN is where I wanna be. I'm glad it's still here and better than ever, thanks to people like you Craig, dB, Jim Quinn, and all of us who participate. 2thu


The great thing about music is that there's always something to learn. The frustrating thing about music is that there's always something to learn!

Another long time lurker here. Don’t post much, but scan and read the boards daily for useful information and inspiration. Much appreciate MPN and all who make this forum possible and am really pleased with the addition of SSS and the insight you provide Craig!

It's a great forum and currently the main one I visit. It often feels a world away from the hit and run nature and increasingly political world of facebook.

I'm not a fan of Facebook, which is unfortunate because so many people that I know hang out there. I've been doing more on Instagram instead, it's more selective. But the great thing about a forum is that threads can persist. It becomes a knowledgebase, not just (as you say) a "hit and run" situation.

Wow. Hello Craig, everyone else...

What a nostalgia trip! It looks like most of the content is back?

Interesting lesson: content online is ephemeral. "Here" can go away.

A law, as far as I'm concerned:

Once an online community reaches a particular population amount - the S/N ratio plummets exponentially.


The thing about "here" that was novel is that the S/N ratio never got too bad, somehow.

Facebook ran me off a few years ago. Twitter is a political battleground at the moment, a Mos Eisley of Establishment propaganda and Peasantry Dunning-Kruger assertion. Other online forums have become
hunkered down with very narrow focuses and belief systems. For a long while I had morphed over to the Cockos/Reaper forum, but it reached that bad S/N crest a few years ago and has become .... aggravating.

Maybe I'll come back in here some for a respite....

Well, I'm pretty much a nice guy, but as a moderator, don't suffer fools gladly.

Welcome back!!

Just keep in mind that the open bar closes at 2 AM, and after using the pool, please put the towels in the hamper. The front desk is available 24/7 (although it takes cabana reservations only during business hours).

Hi, Chip! Glad to see you, sir... cool

The asylum is owned by the inmates now. Let us know what you think about what we've done with the place - the suggestion box is next to the pinball machine. grin
