I know this thread has existed before, but it's now dated and has disappeared into the deepest darkest corner of the pit.

I was inspired to open this thread while reading the "ld pitmonkeys, reunite" thread where many users talked about how embarrassed they were when looking back at their first threads/posts.

So the point here is to quote your first thread (and one of your first posts if you like) and say how much (if anything) has changed since :P

I first joined in order to promote my band and learn how "band stuff" works...think I was 15 at the time.

First thread:


Quote by thedefrockednun
ok heres the deal my band are gna audiion some musicians but none of us want to end up having maniacs at our houses, any advice on how and where to hold auditions??

any help would be apreaciated


No punctuation, AT ALL!!!! Crap abbreviations, spelling mistake...it burns!


Second thread:

Quote by thedefrockednun
Hey, my band is slowly forming and we are gna compose ou own songs but i need some advice coz i'm new to this.

1) is this amp good enough for small gigs?: X Brand X 25R Amp: 75w
2) do u need a manager or record label to record at a studio?
3) how can one find a manager or record label?
4) is epiphone good enough as a guitar for gigs?

I can'T believe how little I knew about anything to do with the music business.

You go!

Oh god. The first four threads I ever made had next to no replies and all got locked. What a retard...

Has anyone ever been called an emo for listening to rock or metal? I have, but I don't know why. None of the bands I listen to come close to being emo.


I'm ready to beat the shit out of myself right now.

One of my first threads was named "what does poo taste like"
The thread started with "I have no sick intentions, I would just like to know..."

It got closed like 5 minutes afterwards (+ warning)
I deserved that for being the attention ***** I was in those days
I fell asleep on my arm once, scariest thing that ever happened to me. I thought it was kill.

Reporting an error message in the bugs section.

None of my threads have been successful. Well perhaps the official BATracer thread is a minor success

Does anyone know if there's a way of finding out your actual total number of posts in the forums? As the Pit doesn't get counted. I've only made 302 outside of the pit since I joined, but I have a total of 500 posts since 20th of March this year. So I'd imagine I have around 10k+ posts by now.

Hey, I'm thinking of Painting my strat a different colour. How do I do this? Becuase if i put paint on top of the current paint, I'll peel off when dry. Can anybody help me?


Still to this day I have not done anything to that guitar.

It's embarrassing. Hold on, linking it.

90% of what I say is stupid and should not be taken seriously, but my first thread was made at a time when I took EVERYTHING I said seriously. The penis game....really?

And the worst part is, at the time I thought it was the funniest thread ever

I very rarely post threads. My first one on this account is a cover of love machine that I did in 2006.
(I'm not dodgy and have loads of accounts. My first one had a spaz and mods were lovely and reset it for me)

My first thread was a "Please tab Ice Nine Kills songs for me"

It was such a bomb. Me, goest and one other guy (who commented once) were the only people in it.

I was such a dick back then too. (As far as I'm concerned)

Some replies to comments:

They're an awesome band. YouTube them, thank me later.

My first (and only) thread was about when the FBI wanted to sue Wiki for having a high-res pic of the FBI's seal on the Wiki page, when the image was originally acquired on the FBI's website.

It died pretty easily, but there wasn't really anything to the story to discuss. It was really just to let people know that the fibbies were being idiots again.

"How many TV shows can you name in two minutes?", with a link to some quiz. What a crap thread :/
#26
My first threads were questions like, What should I get for my B-day? And are electric drumkits any good?

One of my first threads that got noticed was titled "The Muse are coming to my school"
Muse did not come to my school, The Muse was some 'artsy' stupid thing my school did. Needless to say I stopped posting in that thread by the 3rd page when i realized i was wrong

My first thread was in recordings, asking for tips on writing evil sounding riffs. As you can see, my spelling (read: no spellcheck) was really bad back then.

My first thread
Quote by -Mantra-
I have a book called "Guitar for dummies" and there is a chapter about jazz chords.
There were some chord names that confused me a bit.

1) x1112x that chord was named as F#6/9, but there isn't any F# in there. And, what does the 6/9 in the end mean?

2) 3x331x named as C11. In that chord C is the highest note, but isn't usually chords named after the lowest one?

3) 2x231x that chord has two names according to the book, C7b5 or F#7b5. Why has it two names?


My second thread
Quote by -Mantra-
I have heard and read from various lessons that, when using the "Picado" technique, you should hold your thumb on the 6th string.
Is this considered as anchoring and should I practice Picado without touching the 6th string?

Here is an example of this technique, in case anyone didn't understand, what I was on about

Not too bad I guess, but these are also the only threads by me.
