Poor shred forum, this whole site is really dead. I feel like people don't use forums in general much anymore. Exceptions seem to be gaming sites, social media, 4chan, reddit, and etc.

Yeah, it's a shame because I think in some ways the forums were a better way to learn than youtube, which I think has replaced them as the repository of guitar info. It's much harder to find a proper mentor who's willing to put in the time with you, or just to get to chat online with people who really know their shit. On the other hand, there's no doubting that youtube makes it much easier to create effective lessons and it's much more entertaining...

I do miss the social stuff but I don't really have the time any more. What are you up to nowadays?

I appreciate your sacrifice.

I'm glad we merged but at the same time I was an alt/indie poster and that place is no more (which wouldn't be a bad thing if they were posting here as you are >_>) and I get how shred being gone is sad.

Definitely the end of an era, and the end period is probably near.

Wow, it's crazy that this thread was started over 10 years ago... Also, I'm beyond shocked that Shred Forum doesn't exist anymore!

What has happened here at UG?

The entire forum is almost completely dead.

Times have changed I guess. People just prefer youtube or whatever to the whole forum thing. Maybe the more specialist forums are doing better, I have no idea. :S

It's been a long time coming. I'm honestly surprised it took this long to happen. There has been little activity around these parts for a couple of years. Mostly either repeat-threads or zombie-threads. No real legitimate discussions anymore.

Or at least, from what I've seen. I don't pop in as often as I used to. But a lot of the front-page threads I was seeing had many months since the last reply and were still on the front page. Quite depressing to say the least.
