girls w/ guitars music sharing community

You've reached sore fingers, an LJ community intended to serve as a platform to share and explore music from independent, and therefore sometimes obscure, female artists that rock out with their guitars, pianos, cowbells, ukelele, kazoo, etc. The design of such a community relies heavily on member participation. In other words, it's as active as its members are.

Before joining the community, please peruse the posting guidelines and membership requirements below.

Membership to the community is determined by 1.) a brief perusal of each user's journal activity and 2.) friends-to-music sharing communities ratio. [Ex: user's with little to no recent journal activity, no friends and subscriptions to a high number of music/media sharing communities will be denied membership.]

If you are denied membership and feel you'd be an active member of the community despite not meeting the membership qualifications, you can appeal by sending a message to maidofmist stating why the denial was unjust.

POSTING GUIDELINES.<==read before posting. follow while posting.
01. MEMBER-LOCK your entries. If you post a public entry, you will receive a comment in the entry asking you to member lock it within the day. If after the days end it's still public, it'll be deleted!
02. MUSIC-RELATED posts only (i.e., song uploads and requests).
03. COMMENT on songs if you give them a listen. Someone took the time to upload them, it's the least you can do.
04. DISCUSSION of artists and songs is encouraged through comments.
05. TAG artists. This helps with organization and serves as an artist reference.
06. WHOLE ALBUM uploads and requests aren't allowed.
07. FULL LENGTH CONCERTS (non-album) and bootlegs are acceptable.
08. NO PIMPING other communities, merchandise, etc.
09. UPLOAD files using your own personal server or file-sharing websites such as sendspace.com, yousendit.com and megaupload.com. Do not direct-link to a file unless it is your own.
10. MOCKING other people's musical tastes is not allowed. You will be removed from the community.
11. LJ-CUT lengthy entries.

Inability to follow one or more of the above guidelines will result in the deletion of your post or removal from the community, depending on the extent of the offense.

The RIAA dictates that all music downloaded should be removed after previewing for twenty-four hours. What you do with the music you collect here is your own responsibility.
