Would it be acceptable to post individual instructables about guitar songs? Answered

I was going to make a youtube and post videos on how to play guitar songs for my friends, and i was thinkin..."Why not just post them on instructables?!"

So would it be a good idea to post instructables on how to play a song?

There would be lots of them and Im not sure if this is something that instructables was intended for.
thanks!

Do you mean instructables on how to play other peoples song's, piece by piece? It seems an instructable on learning how to learn songs would be more useful, also there's the chance that the songs would infringe upon copyright, the music is also under copyright, not just the whole song.

.  While there is a rather large music community here, there are many sites that are, IMNSHO, more appropriate for "How To Play xxx" instructions. It just doesn't seem to be a good fit for Ibles. YMMV.
.
.  If you do decide to post, I suggest using the Play:Guitars or Play:Music category.

The instructable format is for showing how to do something. If you can teach people how to play, it could be good.
(Posting a performance would go better in a topic like this.)

You need to reply to comments directly for someone to know you have, use the reply but at the bottom right of individual comments to do so. I reckon go for it, though take the time to do nice photos and write up if you can because it'd make all the difference. I think you might be Ok on the copyright but I'm not totally sure, it depends on how you teach it I guess...

you can always post them in the community forum as a topic, there's even a category for music, update your thread any time you come up with a new track you wish to share.
