I apologise Russel et Ken; J'ai desolait! (I am extremely sorry)!
I deleted the other as soon as I'd seen (5.30pmish gmt). I wondered which source I should delete as it was a suggestion I thought people might bite on, absolutely my first forum ever and I'm still feeling my way, forgive me if I stumble.
With respect to everything that is Chordie, Chordie has always been (for 6 - 9 years) my first place to come. I am 42 and I started as a singer who eventually, after his 8th birthday and much nagging, got guitar lessons (taking 1st grade classical, studying to 4th) that finished shortly after I turned 12.
I had a superb grounding in how to use what I'd learned to take me through finding songs I liked in various books and singing and developing my rock/pop/folk/spiritual abilities with the guitar! It's in huge part to Chordie that my guitar ability and my guitar knowledge has become just what I needed - believe me, I very rarely need to go further -
A HUGE THANK YOU CHORDIE!!!
But nearly everything I want to learn has words, I wanted to learn the guitar to accompany me singing. If I could have had resources like this when I was 18, 19, 20, etc, it would be amazing where I could be. Most/all of my musical knowledge has been paid for (guitar and music) since the age of 14; (some of this knowledge has cost me more than I would care to relate).
But I'm here for the guitar, bass, mandolin, etc players who want to learn songs to maybe accompany someone else or themselves or not; for those who are interested in recording in all it's processes; those who love the accoustic guitar, steel et classical, and most of all solid Engleman top, mahogany back sides and neck, ebony.. gold.. (your fave is different) playing it on it's own is enough guitar player who mostly plays to accompany himself singing or accompanying others.
Unless I do something serious that warrants banishment (I don't intend to) I hope I'm here for a long time. I'd like to think I'd made friends here, I wouldn't want to lose that common ground!
If the answer to the question "is there a demand among Chordians to have a section for singers" is yes, I would be delighted and honoured to offer my services to help it along and believe that there are others who could contribute also. I throw this open to my fellow Chordians who are brothers and sisters from the nation of music, sir, madam would it benefit Chordie as a one stop place for ALL your music knowledge?
If the answer's yes, I respectfully suggest Singing appear somewhere near Music Theory - I've never had a singing lesson but started in choirs and churches from the age of about 6 for the former and before I knew the words with the latter and would have appreciated the two together if I was 13/14 + and ReallY beginning what I now do.
