I just put out a request, in a different thread, for clarification of the term indie that I have seen used many times on the forum threads and never could figure out what it referred to. By the way it is short form for the term independent, used primarily when referring to record labels.
I received the reply to my inquiry within 10 minutes.
I have wondered, for some time, how many forum users there are, especially beginners, that have basic Bass and Music related questions, like mine, but are afraid to ask because they feel their question is stupid and they would appear foolish.
I realize that what I am about to say will fall on deaf ears because of human nature but I felt this needed to be said.
I have always thought there was no such thing as a stupid question BUT there sure as hell can be a lot of stupid answers
That is the sole purpose of this thread and hopefully it will inspire some to ask their question(s) no matter how trivial or stupid they may think it/they are because the reality of it is that it is not trivial to you and the question may go unanswered forever and if asked may clear up other questions you may have, and it may also help others that are questioning the same thing.
What is the worst that can happen by asking?
I am sure that any negative replies will be jumped on by a lot of the forum regulars, although I do not recall anybody belittling a forum user for requesting an answer to a question they may have. Possibly you may not receive any replies to your question, although this is rare.
I have over 60 years experience with music and I still have questions, and expect I always will. You never stop learning in the Music game as far as I am concerned.
I would also like to say that of the dozens of other forums I have been directly associated with the BassBuzz Forum is the friendliest by a long shot.
So ask your questions, no matter how small, but I would suggest two guidelines before you do:
1 - Use the search function before starting a thread, maybe your question has already been answered, and
2 - Post the question in the appropriate Forum Section, ie Lounge, Theory etc., this keeps the forum threads uncluttered
Note: When posting a reply on a thread it is always a good idea to read the complete thread before posting a reply just to avoid duplicating something that has already been said.
