I think in some ways chet fan has a very good idea to be honest! although has probably gone about it the wrong way. there is no point in forcing people to post videos or sound clips just to prove a point, people want to post videos because they want to! for fun for feedback whatever really! and I love the idea of a sticky with peoples videos in. many of the pro players have websites and so there really isnt much point, others have myspace's or facebook band pages, (im creating a myspace music page soon for a marketing module at uni, which will have some recordings of my playing etc.) others just are scared of what others may say and some just dont have the time or the equipment to record.... But then I do think that there may be players here who are trying to give advice when they themselves cannot do the skill. I know I have spoken about a subject that I have knowledge on but then dont apply it myself, BTW im also a swimming teacher and can teach others but sometimes cant apply the same theorys to myself. same thing! But if someone is there to tell you whats wrong you can then improve it and work on that 'skill' to then improve your overall playing etc, but someone saying your tone is shocking or you cant do this, make it constructive, 'your tone could be better BUT..... if you practice say long notes it will improve'
