So, im here to collect peoples opinions on adding a Country and Folk forum to our boards. Yes, I know that that style of music is not very popular amongst many of you, but this forum as equal opportunity for both chatting and learning on these great forms of music.

Please take a vote in the poll, and give an honest opinion. You determine wether we get one, and how well it can actually succeed.

It might be ignorant, but I hear every country music song as the same, they have that same voice thing going on. I don't mind any of the country they put on GTA:SA cause that was really emoish and laid back.
yo.

Well, I don't care. I wouldn't ever go there because I'm not big into country music, so I vote no.

People come up with the dumbest names for sexual acts. And the most disgusting concepts for sexual acts.

I'm tempted to report this thread because of how weird this is getting.

i'm all for it.

i mean, i resent the whole redneck thing as much as the next guy, but i don't see why we should avoid it completely.

in addition, rock music as we know it was created with a mixture of rhythm n' blues (the old, good kind) and believe it or not, country.

so to sum it up, i'm all for it.

This is ultimate GUITAR, so I would say no to rap. But Latin has some guitar, and I don't no much about reggae, but yeah, I think UG should appeal to ALL music lovers.

Funny how many people are voting "yes", and yet - if and when the Country & Folk Forum is made - it'll probably have very few regular posters.

The Classical Thread died a long time ago

Country and Folk, yeah.

A hip-hop/rap forum would fill up with morons going in and posting "RAP SUXORS LOLZ NOT REAL MUSIC" in every thread, sort of like the nu-metal forum, so there's no point really.

From what I can see, the organisation of the bands & artists area is pretty poor and muddled, but I guess it works in a way.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

yes defenitly, great idea.

also i read somthing like this in the site feedback forum and was wondering wher i'd see a poll up

In which case it does not merit its own thread. People, you have to be clear on the distinction we need to make. It's not 'do you like country music' or whatever, it is 'would a country forum work on UG'. The answer is, I reckon, no. You can expect quite a lot of posts in most of the genre forums every day, but do you really think that a country forum would get the same level of posting? Probably not. If it would, then we would already see some evidence of this level of country-orientated posting in the Other forum. We don't.

Ditto.

Hell, probably more people on UG like classical than country and folk, but even the classical thread has been dead for a while.

Posting this in the pit is absurd. Half of the users here don't even use the other forums and half of those don't even play guitar.

I like your reasoning there. Full of logic and intelligence .

I agree, I'd say 70+% of the users on UG are just PIT Monkeys, The other 30 are spread thin through Tab Talk, B&A, Etc. I'm going to say I dont support yet another subforum dedicated to Country, b/c you would only have a handful of users that would post there. If you REALLY want to post in a Country or Folk Forum then go to a Country or Folk website.

Ok, well it wasn't very good and didn't make a whole load of sense, but whatever. There still isn't enough demand for any other sub-fora really. Classical, country, rap, reggae, latin, German drinking songs, etc., etc., none of them have a large enough following to warrent or make use of their own sub-forum.

I only posted it here because this forum, sadly enough, gets the most posters and viewers. Where would you suggest I have posted it? Bands and Artists?

Your all probably very right about it not working, and the overall need doesnt call for one, but I think a try is still worth a shot personally.
#32
Yes Nate, I agree with you, there should be a Country and Folk Forum but you know my uncertainties (as outlined in the Feedback Forum). I'll vote yes because I want one too.

I'd have thought country is quite big actually.. I mean, it's very hard to find lessons and advice on it. There's the obvious like chicken pickin' and stuff, but.. writing slow country songs. Y'know, the typical 'Man loved a woman, has been scorned and is writing an agonising song about it'-type. I'd love to write that, lol. I just have no basis on how to do it.

Every time I do, it turns out all metal. Don't ask me how.

So yeah, I reckon it'd do good.

I'd love it. I'm a big country fan, and as I learn to play the guitar, it would be nice to be involved in the country aspects of it.

You can post about reggae in Punk & Ska.

^ Get out.

The reason you struggle to find lessons and articles on country is not because we don;t have a forum for it, it;s because there isn't a following for it here. Folk maybe more so, but there are no country threads being made at the moment, so why would there be in the forum?
