Hello! Here we are, coming up on the year 2015, and this forum continues to be a place where musicians can come together, discuss, debate, pontificate, rant, rave, or just share the weirdest details of their existences. Where would we be without it?!
The music industry remains in chaos, we've lost some of the greats, and some of the new ones leave a lot to be desired. But music survives; we refuse to give up or to give in - just as it should be. But there are bright spots amidst the craziness: there are more good instruments available at reasonable prices than there have ever been, and more computer gear to make and record music at the professional level than us older folks could ever have dreamed of seeing. So hang in there, keep playing, keep creating, and do not go gently into that good night!
