New subforum I'd like to see

Discussion in 'Suggestion Box' started by stratovani, May 26, 2012.

  1. Well, I've scanned all the TB Forum rules, and I don't see anything mentioned about this, so I'll go ahead and post this. The post from free_Bassd called "First gig tonight" got me to thinking that it would be nice to have a subforum dedicated to just gigs and their issues. Over at the FDP they have a subforum just for that purpose called Performer's Corner. I don't think any of the existing subforums, such as Bass humor & Gig stories, is quite what I have in mind, since it seems more humorous than anything.

    Thoughts? :confused:

    My friend Duncan was starting a website like this a while back as a sort of "sage advice" from seasoned players to novices...kinda fell a bit flat, but just the same I like the idea of that here, seems useful

    You know, things like
    1) get offstage, THEN tear down (if you're not the last band)
    2) invest in a signal-cancelling tuner (no one enjoys open string ringing between songs
    3) turn the stage volume DOWN so the FOH can do its job.

  3. I thought the gig stories forum worked for the fun side and band management for the more serious side

  6. Go over to the FDP and check out their "Performer's Corner" subforum. That's what I'm talking about. For me "Gig Stories" and "Band Management" is just what the title says.

    It's just a suggestion anyways.

    Eh, I'd just hate to have yet ANOTHER forum to have to read through. TB takes enough hours out of my day as it is already :p
  8. You asked for opinions, im just giving mine. I just think that Gig stories and Band management cover anything a performers forum would. Gigging/performance being a part of band management.

    i'll pop this over to the suggestion box - i don't necessarily think it's a bad idea (we've discussed something like this in the past).
  10. Sorry about that, John. I had no idea we had a suggestion box here at TB! :oops:
