Welcome to the new 12bar Blues Guitar forum! :wave:

You need to register again, because the database format is different. It is not possible to import the old user settings, sorry.
But you can use your old nickname. :wink:

BTW: Happy Easter! :easter2:

Lookin' good! I think I'll warm up to it just fine. I think I was about due for an avatar change, too (putting it on the other side works very well for this particular one!)

I agree with the previous comments on this.

It does appear to be clearer and well laid out.

Will both run side by side for a while?

Drats... I guess I could've flipped the picture horizontally; but I waited for many moons and through two of the wrong versions being sent to me to get the 1998 DVD version of the movie with the original mono soundtrack, so I could hear the original gunshots instead of the remixed version you usually find today- I don't know if flipping movie scenes is something I'd do! (And wouldn't there be at least a few people here thinking, "Why is Blondie left-handed?")

If anyone happens to know of any lefty gunslingers though, let me know...

Thats all

My driving philosophy about making music is that you can reduce it all down to one note if that note is played with the right kind of sincerity.

Even if I choose "BIGINT" as number format for the counter it would be too small... :icon_whoknows:

Nice upgrade Gerd,takes a bit of getting used to....what's the old saying about "natural resistance to change" but give it time and it becomes comfortable again. Once again well done :beer:

12-bar...

I am really sorry to see you lost all the old posts. I used to use phpBB and I am pretty sure you could have kept them all. Starting over is REALLY hard to do.

And by the way - lost a LONG post I wrote because I hot the "svae" button instead of submit. The submit button should be more predominate in my opinion, and on the left.
