sore fingers. girls w/ guitars music sharing community
COMMUNITY DESCRIPTION. 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.
MODERATED MEMBERSHIP. 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.
