Hi All...

New to the Acoustic group... I have been playing since last April... I have a Yamaha Fg720s and I enjoy the playing. Happy new year all. I look forward to having a fun year here.

I have noticed a lot of new guys get a lot of "add me as a friend" request from "females" that do not have any information on their pages related to guitar or any musical items what so ever. I see pages with ten or twelve "female friends" added within a few days of them signing on and wonder why. For me, if you have a zero profile as far as your music interest, male or female, then you are not going on my list.

when you open the request in your inbox on the community site there should be options right there to accept or ignore the request. These should show up as boxes or buttons you can click. If you got the request in regular email with what looks like a link to a web page with options to accept the request, it's always best to see if you also have the request in your inbox on the community site before you even open the email in your personal account. A basic tactic of account hijackers is to send a friend request with a bogus link to your regular email address- when you click on the link it takes you to a page that allows the hijacking by providing the opportunity to download malware to your machine. It's the same tactic as phishing attacks targeting passwords and account information for bank accounts. As a matter of security on social networking sites, I delete any items that come in to my regular email account -two yesterday that appeared to be from this site- from social networking sites to which I belong. I handle all social networking communications from the sites themselves rather than from my own inbox. If the request is legitimate it will show up in your community site's inbox. The two I deleted yesterday weren't in my inbox here, confirming them as likely fakes- the subject line kind of gave it away as well- clearly nothing to do with enhancing my guitar abilities ;-)

Hey Good People.
Can anyone shed any light on accepting Friend Requests?
I received an email that had a link to a person that has sent a friend request and I cannot find anywhere a button that says accept. Cant even find a message to my page...Cheers Greg

Try this book: "Blues You Can Use" by John Ganapes

I did not know this group existed until now. I started a discussion under Beginners in the Forum section.
Essentially, I have requested assistance for some Blues music for beginners that move around the neck for the beginner. I have been frustrated by downloading tab of Blues Artists only to find that at my stage of learning is almost impossible. Anybody know go to the forum or list the site book or whatever location we beginners can use.

Hey all, new to the Acoustic Newb group but looking forward to helping out where I can. I've been playing guitar for many years and I'm just as obsessed with it now as I was when I first started... so if you're just getting started - keep at it! The guitar is the single greatest instrument ever made.
