So I had to kick a member (Indy500) for spamming a link to an unsecure website. Sorry, but spam for no purpose is not tolerated.

Okay then, I started a discussion trying to get to 1k comments, and I thought it would fail. As I am writing this, Lizzapie, Mnmwert, Vash Hartman, and myself are spamming to get it to 1k. It's already at like 150 or something (every 2 minutes I refresh and I have 10+ notifications lol)

Now the member count has capped out at around 1 member per day, BUT this is a random group, and I didn't really expect it to be this active.

The Best of Laugh Silly Each Month Contest

I'd like to try something fun in my new role as co-administrator of Laugh Silly. Each Month, I will name the best laugh-inducing, silly composition submitted during the month, at least according to me and then post the winners here.
You are also welcome to nominate what you think are the best of the month, also.

THE HONEST GUITARIST

Hello and welcome to the "Honest Guitarist" a community of musicians on  common ground to mastering music in general and the guitar specifically.
First, a thank you to J.Herman for Everything Guitar and opening the way for guitar players to communicate their experiences.
To be perfectly honest and avoid wasting the readers time, let me state clearly that the ideas presented here are targeted toward the intermediate to advanced player and represents the most basic music and guitar knowledge that an aspiring musician should have command of before moving to more advanced study.
Although the material is advanced, any player should find something of interest to study or to encourage further research. 
The idea for presenting such a project was born of my own experiences.
After many years of playing I decided to further my studies under a professional tutor, only to discover many weaknesses in areas of music, harmonic function and guitar technique.
Although the experience was inspiring it was, to a greater extent, disheartening, discouraging and expensive.
While I did continue with my studies I also kept a list of things that I realized I should have known before attempting to learn at the "bended knee" of a professional teacher.

                                                                 *   *   *
After using MuseScore for some time and after recently completing a "master class" (I use the term loosely) it seemed to me that this great music software program could serve an excellent teaching tool to present that exact information.
Hopefully, the "scores" presented will generate some serious thought and study while the student awaits the next book or video or Heaven forbid spends a small fortune on Skype lessons.

I'm working on Book #1 and in the mean time here is a voicing of "Christmas Time Is Here"  for guitarists this season.
MERRY CHRISTMAS!
   

Sleepytime for Phoebe

Scoring feedback/advice requested.
My first attempt at notating for guitar, therefore any constructive advice and feedback on this score from those who know a thing or two about the notation conventions for classical guitar would be great.   (My formal musical education comes from a wind-playing background, whereas all my guitar is self-taught).  Thanks daveneal already for demonstrating the guitar sim on this chart.   https://musescore.com/user/28956788/scores/5664629
