18 years old feel shitty all the time cdntac, don't you know that? Good thing that he decided to post here and have the opportunity (if he decides not to give up after just one try) to learn how to promote his videos without looking like a spammer. In fact there's a lot for him to learn if he decided to come back and read this thread.Congrats guys for making an 18 year old feel shitty.
Well written!To the original poster (OP): you are welcome here, we are a nice community and we do like to meet new people, however we prefer to know a little more about you before you decide to share links and promote your work, the Internet is full of people doing more or less the same and nobody pays much attention unless they have a bit of an introduction first. Join us, introduce yourself if you feel like it, engage in conversation and discuss, make friends, at some point everybody will want to know more, that's the moment to share links, I promise we'll pay attention.
someone came in here just yesterday, for the millionth time, and did the same exact thing. you know that the real truth is this: if he had come here and make so much as an introductory post, and made the slightest show of interest in being a part of things here, he would have seen an entirely different result. dozens of views and thumbs up on his video, from other members who enjoy supporting each other. what he did was the equivalent of throwing a flyer on your lawn, as he rode by on his bicycle. he might be a great kid, just like you say. even good people can make mistakes when they don't know any better. if no one tells him, how will he know? no one yelled at him, and even my (first) comment on youtube was polite.Well, I'm gonna speak up and say that I'm disappointed.
I've known Josh since he was in grade 8. I laughed when I saw he had posted here today (I had no idea he was going to do so and I've not spoken to him since he's posted). I helped run a music club/band for a year that Josh participated in while he was in high school. He's a young guy who wants to be a pro musician and is super keen.
How awful of him to come here and post a YouTube vid of him talking about music and trying to offer playing advice...simply because he likes music.
He's not trying to sell anything or make money. He's just a young guy having fun, putting something on YouTube and who obviously wanted to connect with others whom he thought would enjoy a similar passion.
Looks like you were wrong Josh.
Congrats guys for making an 18 year old feel shitty.
