Looking forward to the new discussion board brings back memories from previous ones. This current forum is the 4th LMG forum I believe, and the new one will be the 5th. 

 

The first 2 forums were structured similar to one long web page. All comments, including replies, were tacked onto the top of the page. So even when replying to a comment 20 posts down the page, the reply was posted at the top. But it worked. Back then it was a much smaller, tight-knit group of people. Steve answered questions almost daily. Some of those long-time-ago forum members were Kate (I think she was a doctor), MikeM who created a file sharing site for LMG (which is linked in my signature), superray, van, jwells (hi John...nice to see you are still around), jimpasq, and others whose names elude me (possibly Mark Corey and Eracer_Team although not 100% sure).

 

When we moved to the 3rd forum, it was really two separate forums (a community site and a discussion forum) that were linked together. They were built with different software so you could go from the discussion forum to the community side, but when you wanted to return to the discussion forum, it opened in a new window (our current forum resolved that issue). 

 

That 3rd forum spurred new growth. The Sloan was our first LMG member to post a video. Dennis quickly followed suit and became an inspiration by videotaping his progress through the course. This was long before vlogging became a household word.  :laugh:  Dennis allowed so many of us to truly realize what LMG offered...a definite way to learn the guitar. When Dennis finished, he went in search of a local guitar teacher. His teacher said Dennis was at a very high level of playing. 

 

The Gathering might have come to fruition on that 3rd forum. Shadow Lady (aka Adele) pushed to get it going, and despite her living overseas, she spear-headed the event. I think MikeM helped by coordinating some of the USA end of things. Adele and k9kaos drove to the Gathering together after Adele arrived in the US. Their adventures and antics together was nothing short of Thelma and Louise! That 3rd forum is where LMG really got its footing and LMG took off. We were privy to Steve working with the likes of Donna Summer, the Katinas, and other well-known recording artists. And that was long before Steve began his live sessions. Interaction between members was very high. We got to see Delbert's curtain--those who remember will probably get a chuckle out of that memory. Many members climbed through the lessons. Hurdles going through the course eventually became stepping stones allowing people to move to a higher level of learning and playing. There was a great deal of support from one another, and when someone faltered, others were right there to lend a helping hand. The community from the second forum became more of a family on the third forum.

 

Due to some of the glitches from the 3rd forum, and possibly with Legacy wanting to expand, this current 4th forum was created. Legacy tried to bring over the discussion content from the 3rd forum, but there were some glitches. If you read some older discussions that appear out of order on this current forum, that's the reason why. There were early LMG graduates, and this thread is one that was brought over here from the 3rd forum. Some of the posts are out of order, but if you are interested in reading comments by those early graduates, take a look here.

 

But eventually the LMG forum really was no more. Legacy began adding courses so LMG was one of several subforums on this site. First came the Piano course followed by Drums, Guitar Set Up, and a host of others including non-music subjects.

 

Yet through it all, the LMG members are the ones who have been the constant. And Steve has been the most dedicated teacher with LMG being close to his heart. When I think about it, this entire company was built on Steve's shoulders and built upon his dedication, knowledge, and passion. Unfortunately, it seems as though all of the people who built this company have bailed leaving Steve behind. None of this mess is Steve's fault though. Steve was never at the helm of Legacy. But hearing that Steve is working on his own forum is like a phoenix rising out of the ashes. It may take some time for Steve to get a new home built for our forum, but no doubt it will be the best yet. Thanks for all you've been doing over the years, Steve. Many of us really do appreciate the knowledge you've so willingly shared.  :thumbsup:

So true …, and thanks for the trip down the memory lane. I signed up back in 2007, and although I didn’t become active on the forum until about 2013, I did read the older threads. I’m looking forward to the new forum now.  :thumbsup:

Hello Cindy. The pleasure is mine. I guess we all will have the opportunity to reacquaint ourselves with each other on the new discussion board.  :)

We’re almost ready! Once you’re done marveling at all the shiny new furniture, you’ll want to set up your account.

 

Now is a good time to locate the graphic or photo for your avatar. As in Facebook, you can upload a “cover photo” as background in your profile. Review your current signature and update as you like. There is an “About Me” with room to tell your life story, so you can get that ready.

 

As Doug says, the only way to transfer content from the old forum is to manually copy-and-paste. We have brought over a tiny sample of what we hope is the most broadly useful advice. It’s a clean slate.

 

There are still some capabilities we haven’t explored, but the site is secured and essentially ready to use when Steve gives the all clear. It appears to work well on various platforms, including tablets and phones.

 

He will likely announce its availability here first, and when the current users are settled in, advertise it more publicly.

 

By the way, the next Live Lessons are scheduled for January 16 and 30.
