Nice list of guitar players heh?
This is a list of guitar players that i have hanging around in The Guitar Museum. Well, not the actual RL guitar players, but pictures of them and if you click on a pic, you can get some info about those artists.
The history of The Guitar Museum.
Back in late 2009/early 2010 I started a Guitar museum on Second Life© with a good friend. We started on a small 1024 sqm spot with just a couple of scripted prims that gave a notecard on touch. We kept adding more and more guitar player to our museum, invited friends to have a look around, and to our surprise we became a hit. More and more folks started to visit our place, and soon we got some SL guitar players asking if we host live gigs and stuff.
At that time we didn't host live gigs, but that changed quickly!
Fast-forward 3-4 months: 4/5 live gigs every weekend day (Friday to Sunday), lots of dj's playing cool music on other days, full region most weekend evenings, heck, we even got our place (that grew from 1024 sqm to a 1/2 region) on the destination guide!
Fast-forward 3-4 months again: Still a full region during weekends, lots of hosting to do, lots of drama to take care of, hostesses don't show up, Sl hickups, etc, etc...
All of a sudden a small group of good folks had to spent a big part of RL time in this fun project. The fun turned into a day job, and that took the fun out of this project!
We closed down the museum, sold a big part of the land, and went back to having fun:-)
While all of this was going on, I discovered OpenSim, and attached a region to OSgrid. I was like: "What to do with a whole region?"
Some builds (and restarts) later I ended up with a new Guitar museum.
Just a museum, no musicians, no drama, just prims and scripts. Another hit! Folks showed up, had fun and all was fine!
I became a frequent user of OSgrid, started a monthly newspaper called the OSGazette with a couple of friends there, made freebies, shared things and knowledge, helped the admins testing things, and then there was a change in management.
Hmm, I had some questions about that, but the new management shut down the townhall meetings.
So I thought it was a plan to ask the management directly, but that conversation ended for me when the management starting to make sicks jokes about eating babies on LBSA.
5 minutes later my museum was offline there, and Oddy had a metro account:-)
I have no clue where I heard about Metro after the management change on osgrid, probably a post on Google+, not sure about that! Anyway, I downloaded the metro-version of opensim, started it up, and tried to make a new dynds account....but wtf!?! I dunt need a dynds thingy!?! This works without dynds thingy! Happy Oddy!
Fast-forward 2-3 months (or weeks, not sure!) I am renting a region from Metropolis, It's stable, its fast, plenty of backups, admins are awesome, etc, etc. (Have look here: http://www.hypergrid.org/metropolis/wik ... /SIM-Miete if your wanna spend some $ on a region here, its worth the euro's)
I have met a lot of friends from Osgrid, some friends from SL, have a full region to play with. Soooo, I loaded an old OAR from the osgrid guitar museum...And it didn't feel like a new start. and a whole region for a simple museum was a bit too much too.
Another fast-froward: The Guitar Museum is alive and it's black and white! Also It's part of a bigger build, but that is another story!
The list above is a complete list of all the guitar players I have in the museum so far, come and visit it if you like, reply to this post if you are missing a great guitar player!
The guitar Museum is a long-term project for me (hey, I have been working on this a couple of years now!), so things will change in the future!
