    I don't think its fear - its exasperation. We were ALL newbs - we can relate.

    Well said Keith. One is in the manual/'search' box/can be googled. The other not.

    Considering the people making such threads manage to ignore the FAQ (and the rest of the site), I doubt a newbie section would really alleviate much.

    it's why I don't frequent forums like i did, want too many of those type of threads, when i started i got a 10 minute lesson from a good friend on how to use 1210's that was it! i went of and started up myself (before the interweb this the mid to late 80's, I learnt traktor by myself as well and as for Ableton I had lessons once every couple of weeks along with google it's really not that hard, I just think the human race has become more lazy and wants it all on a plate nowadays.

    got a guitar at Xmas i have lessons love it, it's brought all that wanting to learn back to me again which i kinda lost with mixing and making tunes, guitar is hard and i love it been at it since January and it's honestly makes me appreciate real music/live music a ton more than i used to do.

    i think in general the internet is a good thing and a bad thing and i reckon most people understand why.

    Nice to hear a real musician on this site, been playing guitar for 4 years myself and bass for 11, love when people come upto me and say sure you can dj but that doesnt make you a real musician, I like to reply with what instruments do you play then? Usually say summit like drums then I ask how long and hear like 2 years... Its great to argue with people that dont have a clue.

    And yes it helps you appreciate live music.

    Yeah, that's something you can expect from someone with a name that's 'slutty' in dutch.
