@AmericanLuke so, we need to make a new chat room? Or we can rename this chat room?

Q: Being able to toggle on jTab instead of being on by default

DomCan we have the option to toggle on and off jTab? As it is right now if there are any note names in code blocks turn into guitar chords and this site is about so much more than guitar chords. I'm not sure if jTab parses in the meta, but here is a common example where if someone isn't careful jT...

@aldy505 It can be renamed
I just went to a library only to find they had not a single book on Harmony.
What do they think they are? A place for kiddie books and all the lastest blockbusters?
Finding any academic material in a library these days is next to impossible. When you do find an occasional academic book, it hasn't been checked out in forty years
What's the world coming to?!

I like “The Pit” for the chatroom too.
I'm guessing the mods can rename it.
I’ll make a meta post.

Q: Name for the chat room

Bradd SzonyeIt came up in chat that perhaps we should give a name to the main chat room, like how the main Arqade chat room is called “The Bridge.” Is this a good idea, and if so what names do you recommend?

So, looks like things have been getting a bit more lively here as of late! That's excellent.
 
Hey there!
Yeah, I've been trying to participate more, because I'm finding this site super useful as I'm learning bass and guitar.
 
That's great to hear!
 
Was just doing some research before posting a question about fingertip care.
Wanted to make sure it wasn't already asked and answered.

Yeah, I remember there being a few popular questions about fingertips -- clearly an important topic for guitar players
 
Yep, mostly about calluses (developing them or not, and dealing with the pain until you do).
I've got them, and my fingers are generally OK, but sometimes they get small splits or rough edges that develop into splits (because I bite them)
 
Ouch... just this week, I actually started picking up my guitar after a few years without playing
after the first day's session of 1-2 hours, my fingertips were tingling for the entire next day, practically until my next session
 
Yep, I know how that goes!
I played a bit in my early twenties, just picked it up again recently.
Setting up my guitars and getting some practice in has helped a lot, but last night I tore up my fingers again.

Q: Fingertip care for guitarists

Bradd SzonyeI have built up calluses enough to avoid most fingertip pain from playing guitar and bass, but I have rough and slightly cracked fingertips: The cracks are a bit painful (especially when playing), and I have a tendency to make them worse by nibbling at the rough edges. Gently filing down the r...

It's surprisingly difficult to take a clear photo of your fingertips! The camera kept focusing on the wrong thing.
