Why thanks, Dave! I also think SSS can be, uh, useful as well as decorative. The "vertical" forums for keyboards, guitars, etc. are wonderful, but SSS is a great place for topics of general interest for all musicians - trends, techniques, creativity, and so on. I also see it as a place where guitar players can learn from the opinions of keyboard players, who can learn cool things to do with their left hand from the bass players, while the drummers keep us in line and everyone figures out the best way to produce our art, enhance our creativity, and survive as musicians in this crazee world.
A lot of times I visit the Keyboard Corner and think "damn, that would be such a great topic for SSS" but of course, I don't want to cross-post and be rude
In my ideal world, people would stop by their vertical forums of choice to hone their skills and hang with their peeps, and then go to SSS to, well, head to the bar and talk about all things music with their pals, and meet new friends.
So yes, do stop by! Just make a left at the cabanas...the SSS open bar is a few feet past the pool, to the right of the hot tub. My only request is that if you go to the pool afterward, please
put your towels in the hampers. Also, pets are allowed, but...no bears. We learned our lesson about that the hard way.
