Hi,
the German Steel Guitar Forum has opened.

http://www.steelguitarforum.de

Everybody is welcome. So if you like to check out your German language skills and you love steel guitar that's the place to go. Cool

Thanks alot
Joerg


Hallo geschätzte Steeler Kollegen.

Habt Ihr auch schon mal etwas neidisch auf die nationalen Steelguitar Foren unserer europäischen Nachbarländer Frankreich und UK geschaut? Dort gibt es regen Austausch unter den Mitgliedern. Die Steeler dort kennen sich, so scheint es, alle untereinander. Wenn ich so meine persönliche Situation betrachte kenne ich mehr Steeler aus dem Ausland als deutschsprachige Kollegen. Sind wir denn wirklich so wenige oder wissen wir vielleicht nur einfach nicht von einander?

Um die Verbreitung unseres geliebten Instruments weiter nach vorn zu treiben brauchen wir, davon bin ich überzeugt, eine starke Gemeinschaft nicht nur auf internationaler und europäischer sondern auch zusätzlich auf nationaler Ebene. Meiner Meinung nach wäre ein eigenes Forum, in deutscher Sprache, das richtige Mittel um die Gemeinschaft zu stärken.

Also, langer Rede kurzer Sinn, ich habe mit Hilfe von Digby Hardy von europäischen Steel Guitar das "German Steel Guitar Forum“, kurz GSGForum aufgesetzt und hier ist der Link:

http://www.steelguitarforum.de

Das Forum hat bereits ein paar Tage im Testbetrieb hinter sich gebracht und läuft wohl ganz stabil.

Also soll heute der Tag für die offizielle Übergabe des Forums an die Gemeinschaft sein. Das Forum ist für jedermann offen, unsere Steeler Freunde aus aller Herren Ländern sind herzlich eingeladen teilzunehmen.

Meine Bitte an Euch wäre, dass Ihr Euch bald am Forum registriert und vielleicht mit ein paar Beiträgen dem Forum etwas Leben einhaucht. Es gibt unter anderem, natürlich die Möglichkeit Euch kurz vorzustellen. Oder Ihr teilt der Gemeinschaft einfach nur mit wann Euer nächster Gig ist.

Seit Ihr dabei? Dann bitte registriert Euch gleich und postet was das Zeug hält! Alle Anregungen und Kritiken zum Ausbau des Forums sind hoch willkommen. Wer eine eigene Webseite betreibt ist eingeladen das Forum zu verlinken, ein geeignetes Banner hängt dieser Mail an.

Viel Spaß mit EUREM Steel Guitar Forum

Joerg, your post made me think of a German steeler who used to be a regular participant on the Forum.....Reiner Hackstaette (I may not have spelled the last name correctly). It has been several years since I have seen anything from him. Does anyone know him or know how he might be doing?

Hi Chuck,
his name is Rainer Hackstätte. I know him from emailings and some phone calls. As you, I lost the connection to him for quite a while now. I invited him to be part of the GSGF but he didn't register yet. If he does I'll give him a PM and forward him to you.

Thanks, Joerg. It looks like it was the first name that I did not spell correctly. I have never met Rainer and do not really know him, but I always enjoyed reading his posts. I hope all is OK with him.

Hi Joerg. Im Uffe Edefur from Sweden. I have just asked to be a member in the German Steel forum.
I met a young German in 1979 in Mallorca when I played steel in a band for 3 months in Alcudia. He was so interessted in steel guitar so I helped him to get a AVM student modell S10 E9. His name was Peter Lenz. I would like so much get in contact with this person. I saw a name on your forum Pit Lenz. I guess its my man Very Happy
Hope I will receive a mail from your forum soon.
Danke
Uffe

The forum looks very nice, Joerg! It's good that you have a place to discuss steel guitar that is in your first language. And it will make it easier to find players and gear in your area. Well done! Smile

I would hate to completely lose all of you German-speaking steelers from this forum -- so I hope you will all continue to check in here too. There are so few of us steel players on the planet that we'll probably always be a worldwide brotherhood.

Good luck with the new forum! I sent the link to my good buddy Stefan Roller. I'm sure he'll be joining soon, if he hasn't already.

I'm now settling into the beautiful country of Germany. I now am treating the US Army troops in Schweinfurt. I've brought my steel and would like to link up with some for some music.
Thanks, Bob Strum and wife Carol

Hey Todd, Yes I'm going to miss all the great friends in Saluda and other shows. I'm hoping that there will be other shows near this fort to establish new friendships.
God bless America!
