Acronyms & lingo labels

On a whim (oaw?) I’ve decided to compile a brief list of acronyms I’ve been seeing lately, some perhaps unique to JGC.

Pfmaihnptiaa. Please forgive me as I have not put them in alphabetical order.

I’ve not seen a file or posting dedicated to this topic and iwelt (I will eventually learn them). Until then here is what I’ve got and still have some to learn:

OM open mike
OMC’s open mike “community”?

JGC Justin guitar “community”?

SY Streamyard software for streaming live music

UTC Coordinated Universal Time (yeah, let’s say it backwards just for fun)

GMT Greenwich Mean Time aka Zulu time same as UT. GMT is now a time zone only.

AI audio interface
DAW digital audio work station
Reaper a software brand of DAW
DI direct input
2i2 a brand model of an audio interface, Focusrite?
OBS brand of DAW?
GB garage band

ASIO ???
PRS ???

AVOYP audio video of you playing

NGD new guitar day

FFS far, far shorter …


OM Open Mic

OMC One Minute Changes

OBS Open Broadcast Software free and open source software for video recording and live streaming.

PRS Paul Reed Smith Guitars,

ASIO/ASIO4ALL Audio Stream Input/Output is a computer sound card driver protocol

NAD New Amp Day

TTFN Ta Ta For Now



Yeah the 212 is Focusrite’s most popular model.


That should be stuck somewhere, well actually there should be a glossary available under each reply you make next to Reply button :smiley: especially if you are talking with Toby or DavidP! :rofl: Then it should automatically come up whenever you want to reply directly over to him :smiley:

The secret to understanding the acronyms is to just spend loads more time here, no glossary needed!

Except for some of @TheMadman_tobyjenner’s stuff, I swear he’s an acronym generation machine :joy:

On a more serious note… many of those are not JGC specific acronyms, they’re either guitar or tech ones
