I am a bit of a newbie to making music, and I'm wondering if I'm allowed to ask questions about my tracks. I'm not advertising youtube channels or anything like that(it is a beepbox link), but I'm a little confused on what this site is all about.

For Example:

I am working on a recreation of Track Name by Author, using Instrument/Sounds and I am having trouble figuring out what chord I should be using to re-create section timestamp through timestamp. Anyone have any ideas?

    Related, if not duplicate: Is it acceptable to ask how to improve my own music and DJing?. Considering SE is not a personal help site, one might consider: will my question be also useful for future readers? You probably could generalize the question to not about you specifically, but if it's only useful to you (and only you), then perhaps it's not suitable for SE. – Andrew T. Feb 24 '19 at 5:37
  • This one is different. I am asking how if I can include a link, and I'm going ot be asking things about "this chord harmony transition better witchmacolit" – user7260 Feb 24 '19 at 13:15

    Could you please add the (hypothetical) question using a fake link (or example.com) as part of this meta question to make it clearer? As far as I'm aware, musical taste is personal, so one chord harmony transition might feel good to someone, but not to others, and that might become primarily opinion-based... because any chord harmony transition can be better or worse to anyone (or in other word, "polling answer", which SE really discourages) – Andrew T.

    On that case, I think this question is now a dupe of Are identifying chords or notes in a song on topic? – Andrew T. Feb 24 '19 at 16:10

    This is asking if I am allowed to include links... – user7260 Feb 24 '19 at 16:12

    Links are irrelevant in this case. You can provide any links for others' convenient, but the more important point is the topic. If the topic is already off-topic, then the discussion about providing links is moot :/ – Andrew T. Feb 24 '19 at 16:16
  • So they are allowed? – user7260 Feb 24 '19 at 16:18

    I'm afraid you're mixing 2 things: providing links is okay for additional context/supporting data, but the topic you're asking about identifying chord is off-topic. So you can't ask that question on here. – Andrew T. Feb 24 '19 at 16:20
  • Which SO site would I go to ask my hypothetical question in this case? – user7260 Feb 24 '19 at 16:21

    AFAIK, there's no existing Stack Exchange site for this kind of question. Perhaps try other sites, like Reddit. – Andrew T. Feb 24 '19 at 16:24

    Ok then. Thanks for all of your help! – user7260 Feb 24 '19 at 16:25

There are several aspects in your question that I will try to answer to.

Asking people for advice...

Asking people for advice is in general closed as too broad and opinion based. These questions tend to accumulate endless answers and it's hard to detect a correct answer.

... on personal work

In addition to be too broad and opinion based, the fact that it concerns a user's personal work will likely be useful for OP, but useless for the rest of the community and for the internet in general.

Posting links

Posting links is allowed when it's relevant to understand a question, but if the question is already off-topic, it will not turn it into on-topic. Then we encourage people to use hosting services that are famous (Youtube, Soundcloud...) and that don't require to create an account and login.
