a lot of good points here. for me there are certain things that i will do and certain things i wont do.
i will help out when i can. i will try to lead you in the right direction.
i wont spoon feed you.
when i teach guitar to my students, they always want to learn to play chords first. but i keep telling them that its coming later. when they get an idea of how the music theory works, i teach them a few easy chords. A, C, and D. then i show them how those chords are put together. then their homework is to use the theory i taught them to figure out how to play E and G. i save B and F for later because of the barre.
give a man a fish and he eats for a day. teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.
i know that we're all here to help each other. and im probably going to catch some crap for saying this, but its not hard to do a search for the same information that people are searching for to bring you the information that you are requesting.
if i want to learn the chords for "waiting in vain". i could take 5 seconds and google "waiting in vain chords" and BAM! the first result has chords.
i could take the time to search through youtube and find someone playing the song, post a comment requesting chords, and wait for a response (could take days). while im waiting i can go to my favorite music forum (ukulele underground, of course) and ask if someone could give me the chords to that song. and wait. and wait for someone to go to google and do a search for "waiting in vain chords" and post up a link to the results that they found.
i will admit that i am guilty of sometimes supplying too much info hehehe. but its usually stuff i can rattle off the top of my head without taking the time to place a well thought out search. but it also pains me to see that some people would consider it being left hanging if the person doing a cover didnt provide whatever was being requested. no one has an obligation to do anything of the sort, IMHO. i do try to respond, and ill give up the chords if i know them, and i usually say if i dont know the chords. but to be honest, my obligation is to my children and my work. so if that gets in the way of ever getting back to someone, and its looked at as if i am leaving someone hanging, why even bother?
