Greetings folks, from Lonesome Dave in Middletown, Connecticut.  Still feelin' kinda new to this site, though I've posted a few comments.  I'm a 58-year old lifelong fan of Brian Wilson and The Beach Boys.  Listening to those sounds makes me feel as good today as it did when I was a kid.  (Well, that might be an exaggeration.)  But I'm wondering if any of my fellow musicians out there ever post their own, original material on this site?  Cuz that's nice to listen to, too.

Hey Dave - Good question. There are many posts scattered from those doing covers of Brian's music.  Lately, Godette502 has been uploading some very nice videos of his Brian Wilson/Beach Boys two guitar arrangements.

While I DO see the occasional original material here, it doesn't seem appropriate to do often.  Maybe some background about the BW/BB inspiration, etc., with a link...but to use Brian's site for 'your own' just doesn't seem right to me.  That's just me though.

Thanks for the thoughtful response, Bugs. A lot of my own work has been inspired by listening to Brian and the Beach Boys. I'm betting that's true of other musicians on this site. It's nice to hear new things sometimes.
We might want to start thinking about new things, while still tipping our hats to the great ones we grew up in awe of. It's possible that everything needed to be said about Mr. Wilson, has been said. Just a thought. But thanks again. And if you ever want a fresh pair of ears to listen to something (new), feel free to send it my way. Always willing to lend an ear.
