most people on this site play music of some sort. don't worry if it sounds dumb or redundant, make threads in here and ask for advice or talk about your playing or your gear. we like talking music here.
this is not a forum for music related spam... if you're running promotions, looking for a band member, selling your stuff, etc, there's a Want Ads/Personals Forum
for that. if your thread disappeared, I probably moved it there.
I've been pretty loose with letting a few regular posters put up their instruments for sale from time to time, mostly because there's barely any posts in this forum. that doesn't mean it's a free for all.
