Where else do you share/collab/etc.?

Hi folks: I realize the irony of my asking this as my first-ever post to MeFiMuTa, but I'm wondering where else folks are congregating online to share their work. For feedback, community, the sheer joy or process of making ... open to any reasons. How large or small of a community is it? Is it constrained by your genre? Do you feel like there are good spaces out there for the work you do? And even so, what are you missing in those communities (aside from the glaringly obvious dearth of playing and sharing in-person)? (Yes, I'm way behind in posting music here, but I'm trying to put in the work now to do better here and elsewhere, hence the question.) posted by mykescipark at 11:46 AM PST - 2 comments

A Whiter Shade of Pale

The Procol Harum song on solo acoustic guitar and voice. Recorded as an iPad Pro video, reverb added with MicSwap Video Pro, then exported as audio. Fifth take, as evidenced by the exasperated opening.

Spear and Magic Helmet

This is a heartfelt anthem sung by bugs bunny to elmer fudd about their unhealthy love/hate relationship. I just found and digitized it from a cassette of demos that is old enough to qualify for decent car insurance rates. [more inside]
