Banned threads and a list of good ones!
Here is a list of threads which are forbidden here.
The primary goals of this list are to keep GG&A uncluttered and to make things as efficient as possible for those looking for help.
The following threads are not to be posted:
Advertising or Promotion Threads
Do not advertise. You will be banned. Since there has been some confusion about what advertising entails, here are a few examples of advertising:
"Listen to my clips" Threads
We're sure you're very proud of your new song - go ahead and post it in the Recordings section. Got a sound clip showing off your new gear? Post it in the Ultimate Gear Demo thread. Please don't post threads just to get people to listen to your clips, though. Same goes for Youtube videos. There are places to show off your playing but this isn't one of them.
Everyone's rig is different; everyone's ear is different. Settings that work for you do not work for the next person. Therefore, settings threads are not allowed as they are not productive. If you really think you need settings, use the Settings Thread
Pitting gear against other gear is not allowed. That's not to say you can't ask, "which of these two wah pedals will work best for my styles?" Rather, do not post a thread asking "which of these two wah pedals is better," since that doesn't help anyone and only leads to arguments.
Side note: "Artist A" vs. "Artist B" threads will be closed and the user banned outright.
Essentially the same as the Vs. thread; "best" is an adjective which simply can't be applied to gear. It's all subjective. Again, asking what would work best for you within your budget for your styles of music is definitely an acceptable thread.
"What strings/picks does everyone use?"
We're all sick of these threads by now. If you're really interested, use the search bar to find a few dozen old versions of these threads.
Off topic threads:
Don't. These include:
Finally, here is a list of threads which have been made for information about specific gear. Please don't make duplicates of these. If you have a new one to add to the list please PM them to Roc8995 and they will be added to the list.
