Just curious if any forum members have tried it? or plan on starting a Hangout?
It just seems like a natural progression, what could be better than 10 forum members talking (video conferencing) about guitars and amps all day/night...haha

Heres a brief description ......................

I use it to text the wife while I'm stateside. I've never done a group chat since I haven't needed to.

I only usually like people when I don't have to see or hear them. But it could be neat to check out new gear, or gear that's for sale.
I also thought it would be a great tool for buying gear as well, this has many useful applications, I was also thinking as a jamming and lessons tool!
I am surprised it's not used more often in guitar forums all over!!

We used to use it for meetings of key players from each office. Was great for me, cause I was in a very busy/noisy area, so I could actually log in on my phone and do it from my car. "The Morning Huddle" we called it. It usually got derailed by my (aforementioned Star Wars loving) boss.

Good tool though.

I’ve used a few times for meetings. It works pretty good until you get around six or seven people on the call. You need a good moderator and people have to agree to signal when they want to talk. Otherwise it turns into big mess with lot’s of audio and video dropouts.

That's what I was thinking it would be good for. We have people from one end of the country to the other. we use skype but it's not always the best. I think I will suggest this and see what the feedback is like. If it works well, I'll let everyone know what the results were.

What have I gotten myself into?
So, imagine this, but with guitars.
All logged into a virtual studio. (Each person on there own line on a DAW)
But in real time!
A rehearsal where you don’t have to lug gear to a cold garage!

Oh Butterknucket, loose the robe bud, very 80’s....

I think the Hang Out can work up to 10 people...Apparently a good moderator can keep it very orderly.
I have watched Tone-Talk with Dave Friedman and I thoroughly enjoyed the episodes!
